Singapore Zoo

Over the weekends, I visited the Singapore Zoo with a colleague of mine. It was a good trip despite slight rain.
SQ Zoo5
Hailed as one of the most beautiful zoos in the world, the Singapore Zoo takes visitors on jungle journeys.

One can hop onboard trams for a fee and enjoy the scenic view of the 28 hectare open Zoo but, we decided to walk.
SQ Zoo4
Elephants at Work and Play show - these soft-hearted giants are just incredible. I have enjoyed more of the Wonders of the Wild show. The aerial feats of primates and the aquatic brilliance of sealions were highly entertaining.
SQ Zoo1
It is all TIGER business !! Oppss ... pee pee or poo poo ? The majestic white tigers are a symbol of strength and power to many.
SQ Zoo2
Cat Country - A face-to-face encounter with a big cat such as cheetah, leopard, puma and jaguar. Cheetah - best known as the fastest land mammal.
SQ Zoo3
Primate Kingdom - Six large and two small moated islands which house several species of attractive monkeys. So many monkeys.
SQ Zoo6
Fragile Forest - One can enjoy the company of fluttering butterflies. A journey through a rainforest. Nice.
SQ Zoo7
Others such like the white rhino, camel and many more. Below are the few pictures that I really like.
SQ Zoo8
How you can help. Of course, your donation will help provide the finest home possible for them.

SQ Zoo10
Independent and resilient, some of these natives have learned to survive in extremely harsh conditions, such as the Afar areas where temperatures often soar above 50 degrees Celsius.
SQ Zoo11
In the wild, Bengal White Tigers are found exclusively within South Asia, notably in India.
SQ Zoo13

SQ Zoo12
Proboscis Monkey - The most distinctive trait of these monkeys is the males' large protruding nose. Female proboscis monkeys prefer big-nosed mates. The Proboscis Monkey also has a large belly, as a result of its diet.

It was a tiring trip. But overall it was my first trip to Singapore in a long time. Nice place. Reminds me a little of Japan. Foreigners everywhere !
