We thank Benjamin Lee and Raem Tan from NParks for notifying us of a Sunda Pangolin (Manis javanica) carcass this morning in the Mandai area.

Preliminary inspection shows broken scales and bruises that indicate vehicular impact as the cause of death. The carcass has been recovered by the museum, and analysis of its stomach contents would tell us more about the diet of Pangolins as part of an existing research project.

If you see dead wildlife, do not let them die in vain, as they are valuable for science. Please alert us here.
