  pygmy hippos playing
by trisanna

The Singapore Zoo is one of the better zoos. The animals aren't behind big bars-but are held back by natural barriers. Some animals (monkeys, birds) run wild through the zoo-which is quite interesting.

The highlights include the Orang Utan, hamadryas baboons, elephants and my favorite, pygmy hippos. They are much smaller than the other hippos.

The zoo has a breakfast and afternoon tea-which their orang utan and snake visits. You can have your picture taken with them.
