“The thick ground cover we have provides them with extensive foraging opportunities, often ‘disappearing’ under it and all we see are ‘ripples’ of the vegetation (above).

“Our ground cover consists of many plants intermingled: Money plants trailing (Epipremnum aureum), Wild Strawberries (Fragaria vesca), Daun Kaduk (Piper sarmentosum), Chilli plants (Capsicum annuum), a number of herbs, etc.”
