The Singapore Zoological Gardens,
an open-concept zoo which is home to more than 2,000 creatures, has
attracted international acclaim because of its clever use of rock
walls and streams as natural barriers. Next to the Zoo is the Night Safari,
another world-class attraction, where you can look a single-horned
rhinoceros in the eye, prowl through the dark with a pack of striped
hyenas and look out for leopards. The Jurong BirdPark
is one of the world's largest and most impressive aviaries, and a
refuge for over 8,000 birds of 600 different species from all over the
Butterfly Park and Insect
emergent butterfly, the newly-transformed Butterfly Park & Insect
Kingdom promises to be an experience you won’t forget. Be dazzled by
the riot of colours as thousands of tiny wings flutter around you as
you stroll through the natural environment - amidst waterfalls and
flowers in bloom - where these fragile specimens thrive in. Get
acquainted with the history of these creepy-crawlies at the Insect
Revolution exhibit and see how they have evolved through the ages.
Special highlights on display include complete sets of insect fossils
dating back million of years.
The park will also be the first in the world to showcase a 70m-long
cave housing live insect specimens in their natural habitat. Visitors
can get up close and personal with the Rhino Beetles, Giant Spiders
and scorpions. As you venture further into the dark, discover
Fireflies which serve as guiding lights. For the more adventurous,
participate in the twice-daily Stage Shows where you can learn how to
handle giant scorpions, beetles and other insects. Try picking up a
stick insect at the Stick Insect Safari, that is only if you can spot
these cleverly-camouflaged creatures!
