Second nature

Some Hong Kong mammals:
1. Manis pentadactyla (Chinese pangolin), nocturnal, shy, forest-dwelling
2. Sousa chinensis (Chinese white dolphin), playful, occasionally spotted off the coast of Lantau
3. Photographus fanaticus (pictured below) occurs widely, frequently spotted among rocks at Shek O

A sub-species native to HK - here.

EXTRA, EXTRA:
Land of no cheese has just published a guest post on Sassy Hong Kong: a walking tour of East HK Island with lots of photos! Check it out here.

Also, another Time Out HK page is out today - HK buskers and more! Here's a peek (click to enlarge):

    1. Of course you would know where it is! You can email in to Time Out to tell them (but I don't think you'll win anything!)

  2. Hahaha... and my vote for most extreme examples of Photographus fanaticus goes to those who also are birdwatchers! ;b

    1. Absolutely. I should devote a later post entirely to that sub-species!
