New book: "Colugo: The Flying Lemur of South-east Asia"

Category : books

This 80-page full-colour book authored by Norman Lim is published this week by NUS Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research and Draco Publishing Pte. Ltd.. It focuses on an elusive part of Singapore's natural history. With contributions from many field scientists and nature photographers, this book put together everything currently known about this elusive gliding mammal.

Illustrated with stunning colour photographs of the animal's natural behaviour in the wild. The book may be pruchased with a DVD containing footage of wild Colugos.

The Colugo is a nocturnal mammal that can glide from tree to tree. Often seen in the rainforests of Singapore, Malaysia, Thaliand, Indonesia and parts of the Philippines, very little has been documented about this astonishing and charismatic animal.

This book will help you discover what Colugos are, where to see them, their diet, predators, husbandry and problems of living in captivity.

Special discounted price

From now until 3rd Feb 2007, the book is will be sold at a special discounted price of S$20 (without DVD) and S$30 (with DVD) at Nature's Niche (naturesniche.com) bookstore at the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

After this special introductory period, the book will be sold at S$25.20 and S$37.80 (w/DVD).
