Domestication is necessary, however they may lead to the change of habitat which may induced stress in  sh. This study was carried out to compare hematologicalresponseof M singaringan in their natural habitat and in captivity. The neutrophil and lymphocyte counts of M singaringan in the natural habitat and those in captivity over a period of 14 days did not differ signi cantly (P<0.05), however the monocyte counts was signi cantly different. Fluctuations in the neutrophil, lymphocyte and monocyte counts indicates the response M singaringan as form of adaptation pattern when reared in captivity
