    it is possible, but very rare now......only had spotted died one before along my corridor.

    just go up north you can easily find them.

    Not very common but possible to find them in SG. The local ones seem to be the single horned species

    I think one female flew into my house few weeks ago. Tried to pick it up and she gave me a hiss. Wings rubbing against wings? Finally managed to catch it and put it at a tree below my house.
