There is a large drain just outside Woodlands stadium which runs parallel to the mrt track.
When it rains heavily, huge torrents of water would run thru this drain.
Once the 'tide' recedes, water monitor lizards like the one in the 1st pic will appear at this drain.
I've personally seen a couple of them a few times after heavy rain.
I wonder where's their habitat.

I don't remember the names but I can identify bird species with their correct scientific names thru bird guides and other references.
