Singapore Zoo is fantastic. It is on a large piece of land that juts out into a large lake that is one of their water reservoirs. Lush green vegetation goes right to the waters edge. Can't you just tell I'm from somewhere that is just out of a long drought.
We had breakfast with the Orang Utans,
played with the Pygmy Hippos through the glass.
and paid $5 for a basket of fruit and vegetables to feed the elephants.
The only cages were for the cats that can jump - leopards and jaguars. All the other animals were in natural settings some with large moats between them and us.
Well worth the visit. They are very into conservation and education. We'd love to go back because we could not see everything or go to all the shows.
Maybe another holiday????
