PokeZoology - The real life Pokemon of Singapore is a blog by Sean Yap, a PhD student residing in Singapore. He says: "Mainly for my own exploration, but a nice bonus if this is entertaining to anyone who chances across this site. This is an adaptation from a Facebook album I started, which you can see here. My posts will mainly highlight the native biodiversity of Singapore, with some mention of international biodiversity when need be."
Thank you Sean!
