Looks like it as the other do not have the Rhino horns. This is my first encounter of this specie in the wild here. According to a group who pass me, one of them mentioned that these can be found aroound the coconut trees in the past.

PT, the tree is at the side of the weaver nesting pond - see your video at 0:23, behind the blue umbrella :lol:
Now that these have been publicly blogged about, it should be far easier to just look for the battalion of photogs surrounding the tree... :giggle: http://sgmacro.blogspot.com/2011/05/sin ... etles.html
