Bionic Base Camp: Tiny Wildlife Reserve in Urban City of Yogyakarta

It was a nice afternoon when I get surprised by a picture on my Facebook feed. It was a picture of small, brown, ferret-like animal in a body of water, uploaded from my friend and mentor Imam Taufiqurahman. Suddenly, I realized that it was a picture of Small Clawed Otter (Aonyx cinerea), a small carnivore that inhabit the river area of Java. Well, it is not weird to know he got the picture of it—even though it is an elusive and shy animal, we can still find it in a proper area for them to live. What made me surprised on that afternoon is when I know that he took that picture just behind his rent house, right in the middle of Yogyakarta’s urban area, which is not a very good habitat for any wild life.
