"every life counts.."
Category : education
Ah Ming, an NUS undergraduate, visited the Raffles Museum recently. He writes,
"i went to Raffles Museum Biodiversity Research for one of my assignment recently.."
"The carcass of a baby leopard cat - whose sighting was recorded only twice in Singapore history - is taxidermised carefully after it was run over on Mandai Road last June."
"u ever know singapore havae leopards? the sight is kinda gross.. the poor cat head is like totally GONe.. just a bloodly mass..if u ever make a visit to the musuem. u can see how fragile life of such animals.."
