Zoo Revisited 19 Aug 07


So what’s new? Well quite a fair bit really……I mean I was plesantly surprised when I made the trip today. If you thought the Australian Outback Exhibit, Komodo Dragons or even the White Tiger ones were relatively new, well guess again. They’ve been around for quite some time now. They have a new Sun Bear exhibit! Well I must say that for this one, it is long overdue as it was the only one that remain unchanged since the zoo first open it’s doors. Then they have a boardwalk (bridge-like walk) up where you could get up close and personal with the free-ranging Orang Utans. Also a new Sumatran Orang Utan Exhibit that looks like a native hut. And they have refurnished the Crocodile enclosure/exhibit and is now known as Sungei Buaya!

Here are a few random pics I took today…..

    Kate : Well they have quite an extensive collection of snakes on display behind glass panels. Only a select handful are brought out to the public to handle and are supervised by the ‘Rovers’. We once had an exciting encounter with a spitting cobra, it was hyperactive that day! And even behind the glass panels was intimidating. Imagine all that Venom spewing onto the glass panel itself! :eek
