Those who have attended our educational talks know what this is! It’s a Moonrat (Echinosorex gymnura), also known as Haji Bulan locally.

Their anal glands produce a powerful scent, resembling ammonia or rotten garlic and can be smelled from several meters away!

Bud said that this was his first encounter with a Moonrat and sadly this one was roadkilled!

What about you? Have you encountered a Haji Bulan before? Let us know! 🙂
