The Return Of The Green Lizard

Central Catchment Nature Reserve
North, Singapore
January 2014

Our native green-crested lizard had been effectively replaced by the changeable lizard. The changeable lizard was introduced in the 1980s into Singapore from Northern Malaysia or Thailand. This is a saddening example of how an introduced species can affect the fragile ecosystem and in some cases, causes extinction to the delicate native species. It's good to see this native species making a comeback these few months in the Central Catchment Nature Reserve, in the North of Singapore.
