The practice of trapping and killing birds might be slowly dying out in Langkawi with the new generation less interested on having birds as pets, so hopefully in the not too distant future illegal mist nets will be a thing of the past in Langkawi.
Its been a long 9 days since we have the colugos in our care now. Mama colugo was so impatient and she no longer want to hang out in the basket, cage, tree trunk and the room.
My sister said she would be the best person to take care of them. She looked after a civet-cat before and the animal live, thrives and rehabilitated.
We managed to get a good car with fully air condition and planning to take colugos to the vet.
This morning mum colugo looks more aware of the surrounding but still is not moving much. When I open the box, baby was on top of mum, looked at me and quickly hide under mums.
At about 4 pm I received a called from The Datai villa manager, his staff found an injured "bat with a baby attach to it" at the beach villa. I asked how is the bat face look like?; a dog or a flat face Persian cat?.
