    Macaca fascicularis fascicularis:


    Velvet worm of some sort:


    Unidentified jumper:


    Unidentified pisaurid or lycosid:


    Unidentified cricket of some sort:


    I apologise for having so few photos right now, but since I'm probably going back to the place this Saturday I'll be sure to post more. Sorry about the pisaurid/lycosid pic as well, I did take the spider home to snap a few photos, but since the spider came from the same place I thought I would post it.

    Stupid question, but are the monkey thingies....friendly?lol

    Lol, I wouldn't call them friendly. In some places they can get very aggressive. As recently as last year, some people had their houses invaded and "burgled" by these macaques, and they were, surprisingly, not intimidated of people holding wooden sticks! If they were as large as gorillas I think humans in Singapore would be wiped out.
