Day 08: Singapore – Great fun at the zoo!

Saturday, July 20, 2013

After visiting River Safari, we went next door to visit the Singapore Zoo. At $39 SGD for both, how could we resist?

Since all of us had been to Singapore Zoo before and we were tight on time, it was decided that we would only visit the areas of interest to us.

Come on an animal-photo-adventure with us!

First up was the Frozen Tundra to see Inuka, the polar bear, give a show!

“Dig dig a tunnel!”

Mufasa! Last time we visited, the lions were pathetically lazy. This time, he was roaming around non stop and looking (sort of) majestic for photos.

A random lizard crossing our paths, is it a monitor lizard?

Look, it’s Zaboomafoo! Okay, different species but I still love the Ring-Tailed Lemurs!

Caught a Flying Fox waking up from its slumber…

… he then proceeded to lick his penis… haha!

IMG_4975

Mike’s favourite… the Mouse-deer! They are so shy!

IMG_4989

I wish I had a video of Michael trying to pet him. He didn’t skirt away but kept shrinking lower and lower to the ground until he had no where else to go. 😛

A lonely Mandrill

Little clumsy-looking-but-cute African penguins

I took amazing photos of the White Tigers last visit. This time, they were already fed and being lazy in a far corner. This was the best picture I got 😛

And lastly on our trip, the Hamadryas Baboons!

Lots of grooming happening

Oh look, the little one is picking another baboon’s butt.

IMG_5048

Oh gosh, full of poop!

IMG_5050

On another side, a baby looks like he’s having fun hitching a ride

IMG_5057

Haha, baby baboons look like old wrinkly men… but so cute at the same time!

And to end the trip on a “inspirational” note: Two good friends sitting enjoying the view and having a nice chat about life…

We walked out of Singapore Zoo and said farewell to Bing and Lihuan. So lovely to see them, even though only for a day! We’ll see Lihuan in September when she comes to visit Bing in Brisbane!

Xuan was kind enough to offer to take us to one more destination before we had to head back to the hotel and then to the airport… how could we say no?

Stay tuned to find out where!
