White-Bellied Sea Eagle (9/27)

Last but definitely not the least in denomination, the old $10,000 note featured Singapore’s largest raptor, the White-Bellied Sea Eagle. The bird of prey is usually seen flying around the Marina Bay area and diving for its meal of fish, sea snakes and crustaceans. The name of the Malaysian state of Selangor was inspired by the sea eagle, and the bird itself has been featured on the state’s tourism logo. The habitats of the White-Bellied Sea Eagle are constantly threatened in Singapore where urban forests are cut down to make way for new developments.
