Hippopotamus @ Singapore Zoo

After visiting our local zoo and seeing how sad all the caged monkeys and the rest of the animals are, we don’t really quite like zoos anymore until we came across Singapore Zoo. Their Orang Utans there are free-ranged and dangled freely on trees. All other animals have their own spacious enclosures and no one was in cages.

Ethan especially loves the hippopotamus. He has never imagined a hippo to be so graceful until he saw with his own eyes those hippo tip toeing in the water!

Here in Singapore Zoo, the hippos swim freely and visitors get to see their entire features in that glass enclosure.

Ethan was tickled by the way the hippo tip toed across him. Hippos can’t swim so they walk in water.

These two are a couple. I forgot their names.

Can hippos swim?

We even got to see the hippos feeding.

Nom nom nom. We love the Singapore Zoo very much and are saddened that our local zoo is in such a deplorable state. I wish something will be done to improve our local zoo :(

    Ethan looks so different in these pictures. May be because his hair style. He looks so small next to the hippo.

    Yeah Singapore Zoo is really world class. We saw the same hippos too. They were kissing in fact. I took some pictures but unfortunately my skill is terrible. So the pictures turned out dark. Didn’t bother to post it in my blog. Sigh.
