Only certain animals are allowed to be kept as pets in Singapore, but increasingly, some Singaporeans are breaking the law by keeping banned wildlife as domestic companions. To that end, the Republic - one of the world's top 10 wildlife smuggling hubs - has also become a final destination for many of these illegal exotic animals. Dealers, smugglers and pet owners exploit what some claim to be the local authorities' lax efforts in curbing this trade. Hiding in Plain Sight seeks to present views from across the spectrum, while exploring different aspects of the illegal wildlife trade in Singapore.
