Mohomed Bahir of Sri Lanka's Wildlife Heritage Trust

Category : visitors

Mohomed Bahir, a research associate from the Wildlife Heritage Trust of Sri Lanka , is currently visiting the Raffles Museum (17 Jun 30 Jun 2004). He is collaborating with research staff on several different projects on Sri Lankan biodiversity and this trip he intends to finish several papers nearing completion.

Bahir will be working variously with Peter Ng, Darren Yeo and Cai Yixiong on systematics and taxonomy of various groups of Sri Lankan freshwater crabs and shrimps. Bahir is also referring to material from Raffles Museum's reptile collection for comparative studies with selected groups of Sri Lankan lizards. you might have caught Bahir on television - he was a lizard wrangler on the National Geographic documentary, "Thunder Dragons".

Bahir with Darren and Peter, discussing a posssible new genus of freshwater crab and (what else?) crab gonopods!
