Abstract

Studies on the mammal fauna of Pulau Singa Besar, Langkawi were carried out during 2001 and 2002. A total of 51 species - 21 non volant and 30 volant species - from past and recent studies were recorded. Two species, the Smooth otter (Lutrogale perspicillata) and Indian False vampire (Megaderma lyra) are new records for the Langkawi Archipelago. The species diversity between the non volant and volant mammals is discussed.
