Draco (genus)

Draco (genus), originally uploaded by brandon Chia.

The Flying Dragons are native to the southwest tropical forests of Asia and India, including Borneo and the Philippine Islands. In the wild, the Flying Dragon will generally claim a territory. Usually, males will mark two or three trees as their own, and one to three female Flying Dragons will live in each tree. When the male Flying Dragon meets another animal, he may extend his dewlap partially or fully, extend his wings partially or fully, perform a combination of dewlap or wing extension, or bob his body up and down. If he meets a female, he may circle her. Extending the wings and dewlap makes the Flying Dragon appear larger, and he will usually exhibit such behavior if he feels threatened. Flying Dragons eat insects. They catch such prey by sitting under a tree until an insect passes by, and then they eat it. Flying Dragons are diurnal and hide in the late morning and early afternoon to avoid the most intense sunlight of the day.

I saw this uncommon lobster at KNT which is listed as a threatened animal in Singapore, it was on a sandbank on the other side of KNT. I then took a few shots of this and then both the staff and myself moved it to the otherside where mud is available.

If you have been to any mangrove habitat and you saw volcano like stuff on the mud, yes! It's made my a mud lobster! More infomation about this facinating creature is available at http://www.wildsingapore.com/chekjawa/text/m321.htm

Have fun!
