Singapore: the Zoo

As promised, here is my post on the animals of Singapore. There is yet to be a post of the birds, but for now you can enjoy all the other animals I saw.


Oddly enough I consider this monkey my friend. He was just so cool and played mirror games with me. At one point I held out my arms and it looked like he would actually jump across the water. I got kinda spooked so I stepped back and he clapped instead.


I love meerkats! They were hard to spot at first and even harder to photograph, but I got my chance eventually.



These monkeys are so laid back, but most of all so uniquely looking.


Of all animals, the prospect of seeing tapirs had me most excited. Unfortunately I'm always unlucky with them, yet again they were at the very back of their territory.


This monkey looked like an old man looking down on today's kids, reminiscing the good old days.


Ok, this might not be the most exciting animal of the entire zoo, but I love the way he blends in with his surroundings.


I didn't have much time at the zoo, so I tried my best to see as many animals as possible. This was one of the last ones I could see before the sun set.


When we entered we were greeted by some people in these amazing costumes. I once went to the musical of the Lion King and it really made me think of that.


Perhaps my favorite thing about the zoo are the amazing signs that tell you were to go. They are so lifelike and so very cool.


Usually I don't really like zoos, it makes me depressed to see all those animals in cages that are too small for their comfort, but the Singapore zoo looks like a great place to live as an animal. They have lots of space and lots of green, no concrete and fences here! I enjoyed my visit very much.

  4. Awe! I love meerkats! :P I used to watch Animal Planet's TV show about meerkats that was told as a soap opera, but it got really sad and I had to stop watching it, hehe. Spider monkeys are adorable, too. Neat photos!
