This Clouded Monitor carcass was found along the KTM railway tracks that run alongside Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. It is very likely that it had been killed by a train, especially considering how badly mangled the remains were, with the head and one limb separated and flung some distance away from the rest of the body.
