This & That Including What Ails

Zoo – One Word Prompt

on November 30, 2017

The Singapore Zoological Gardens is very popular with locals and tourists.

We have a pair of pandas, Kai Kai and Jia Jia that the Chinese government loaned us as part of diplomatic relations.

We also had a pair of koalas from Australia but they have since gone home.

Our zoo sees healthy reproductions of offsprings. Our infamous Orang Utan Ah Meng passed away years ago but his grandchild is now the showstopper!

Elephants, tigers, monkeys etc all have seen births except the pandas. Zoo keepers are doing all they can to enliven the mating ritual.

So successful is our zoo that they expanded to include the Night Safari.

My last visit to the zoo was some years ago…when Inkua the polar bear passed away from old age.

They have new species of animals, amphibians and a garden of vegetables!

But hey we have our own public zoo…we have monkeys running wild in our reservoirs, otters living in the marina barrage area and wild boars in Bishan!

Our “zoo” has extended to the urban life setting as these fowls and critters are joining us from the wild🀣

  1. I love the idea of going to the zoo at night!

    As for the monkeys…well, my last encounter with a wild monkey ended with one hitting me. Not the best experience!

    Hmm, monkeys always look deceptively cute till you see their giant teeth…😱🐡…but what an interesting selection! 😸😒xxx

    Street Monkeys…sounds like a gang!
    I like zoos, they give humans a place to see creatures we might not ever encounter. (note: those monkeys are still making me think nervous thoughts!)

    Hi, I have read some of your blog posts and I absolutely love them. As a child, when I lived in Singapore I absolutely loved that zoo! Now, I am currently a safari guide in South Africa and am trying to share my experiences with everyone. It would be greatly appreciated if you have a look at my blog and let me know what you think. Many thanks in advance.
