Think these are berries? Think again! 😉

These fruits are syconia or figs of the Sandy-leafed Fig (Ficus heteropleura)! Growing up to 13m tall, this small tree produces round fig clusters that ripen from bright orange to fire-cracker red. 🧨

Other than its figs, the underside of its leaves have a similar texture to sandpaper, which gives its common name!

Here’s a spotlight on one of our native wildlife this World Wildlife Day!

The Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) is a small, wild cat that gets its name from its leopard-like coat.

One of Singapore’s larger carnivores, they are mostly found foraging on the forest floor with a diet consisting of frogs, lizards, birds and rats. This shy and elusive mammal has been spotted through camera traps in nature reserves, allowing us to monitor its population and movement without any disturbances.
