Records of the Malayan porcupine, Hystrix brachyura (Mammalia: Rodentia: Hystricidae) in Singapore.
NATURE IN SINGAPORE 9: 63–68.
The Malayan porcupine (Hystrix brachyura) is known to be native to Singapore, but the lack of sightings from 1970‒2000 suggested that the species was either locally rare or extinct. With the widespread use of camera traps in wildlife monitoring projects since 2005, there have been a substantial number of records involving porcupines which are compiled here. The conservation status of Hystrix brachyura in Singapore is briefly discussed.
