Zoological Gardens & Night Safari, Singapore
Well covered on VT I know so won't reinvent the wheel, but this is one of the better zoos I have been to and well worth visiting if you are in town.
Only for the little ones. Within the compounds of the zoo is a little playground and a wading pool. Children can have a soaking good time with built-in water guns and water sprinklers.
one of the best ways to see the zoo is on the night safari, it makes it look as if you are only a few feet away from the animals. brilliant
This was an interesting little fellow. As I photographed him, he keep coming nearer towards me....he doesn't look that friendly now, does he?
Look at that cutie! I just wanna squeeze its cheeks....oh gosh! I could just abduct him & take him home with me...!!!
Found in the Small Mammals section, the prairie dogs look so cute you just wanna reach out & squeeze them.
There are many free ranging exhibits. This little fruit bat is feeling a little sleepy in the day time I think!
There are also free flying birds in here. In the pic, the zoo keeper is preparing afternoon snacks - looks like some sort of syrup - and the birds are eager to dig in!
The chimpanzees have a really nice living area. The poles and playpen is specially designed to mimic their natural environment as much as possible & to keep them occupied throughout the day.
