The Singapore Zoo

Unbelievable, but, true – after being in Singapore for almost 4 years, this is the first time that I visited the Singapore Zoo.
Tiring, but it was a great experience to see the animals “up close” and learn about their characteristics and special abilities.
For me, the highlight of our visit was seeing the 2 White Tigers, Omar and Winnie. They really are the “Fairest of them All”! However, it is saddening to know that there are only, roughly, 1,000 left of them in wild. With a very low chance of 1:10,000 of having a genetic mutation of Bengal Tigers to produce a white tiger, I’m afraid the future generations might not have a chance to see one in their lifetime. 😦
The Singapore Zoo opens from 8.30 am daily and they have different zones where you can get frenzy with different types of animals – and maybe feed some monkeys, too! 🙂
Here’s the Singapore Zoo map:
Too bad the Singapore River Safari wasn’t opened yet when we visited. I guess that’s one good reason for me to go back – to see the 2 cute Pandas, Kai Kai and Jia Jia!
