A 33-year-old man, Lim Kok Huat, was fined $6,600 by the court on Sep 13 for the possession and keeping of illegal wildlife.
The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) said in a news release that it received a tip-off on Feb 28, about how an individual was allegedly selling illegal wildlife online.
"We worked with our informant to monitor his activities and subsequently conducted a sting operation on March 8," it added.
Two Indian Star tortoises and a hedgehog, which were meant for sale, were seized during the operation.
Lim had transported them in plastic containers.
The animals were subsequently placed under the care of Wildlife Reserves Singapore.
