My sis and her friend wanted to go to the River Safari (http://riversafari.com.sg/), and so i gotten the corporate card from my company, and off we go on a sunny morning on 2nd Mar’14!
Following an advice from a friend, we went to queue for our boat ride tickets first. After a half an hour queue, we finally started our journey by first exploring the Rivers of the World…
Busy checking out the fishes one by one.. i mean, by species..
The “innocent” looking African dwarf Crocodile at the Congo River. No one wants your skin? Lucky u!
Can’t tell much difference between a Yangtze alligator and an African crocodile, but it’s definitely not as lucky.
Happy to approach the Giant Panda forest… cos’ of the aircon 😀
Greeted us first was the Red panda, who is obviously well-trained as a super model, walking around and stopping occasionally to pose for photo shots.
Lazing in the outdoor compound is Jia Jia. Kai Kai is hiding herself in her cave… too shy. We can only see her through CCTV :p
As compared to the pandas, i was more fascinated by the polar bear. Seeing it swimming in slow motion, aimlessly and freely, is making me very happy 🙂
The panda “pau” is a must-try here, though we spent more time taking pictures of it than eating it. The cappuccino is nice too 🙂
One Squirrel monkey looking really alert.
While waiting for the boat ride, we decided to explore the aquarium at the Amazon Flooded Forest.
The Black Knife Ghost Fish is really cool~~
Finally after queuing for half an hour, we started our Amazon River boat ride. However, it turned out to be quite a disappointment. Throughout the short 10 mins ride, i took pictures of the sign boards more than the actual animal itself..
Managed to catch a glimpse of a jaguar’s backside. The heat is unbearable i know.. i feel your pain
And at least there are some Scarlet Ibis and Caribbean Flamingo towards the end of the ride.
