It was actually 'passing motion/ excreting' as well... Not sure why. But it was really sad.
One of the host plants of the Atlas moth caterpillar is the Singapore cherry. Think it is found at the canal also.
And it was actually still alive...
The characteristic fleshy spines of the caterpillar.
Let's just hope it will survive, it is really quite a pity if it dies like that since it seems rather mature... do catepillars have regenerative powers?
After some observation, I put it back.
[Edit] Today I sawwwww a house shrew dead at the canal, plus weird birds with a tail swooping down to the canal waters... [/Edit]
