The Zoo Negara, Malaysia

The Zoo Negara, once set in virgin jungle, now stands like an oasis amidst a concrete jungle.

It was officially opened to the public in 1963. The zoo features about 400 species of Malaysian and exotic mammals, reptiles and birds. Of these, the majority are fish and bird species while about a hundred are mammals and the reptiles.
The National Zoo is situated 13 km from the centre of Kuala Lumpur. Its aquarium “Tunku Abdul Rahman Aquarium” is a very popular attraction.

It displays over 80 species of aquatic animals, both marine and freshwater, including invertebrates. And visitors are asked not to feed the animals. They do that by funny board: a hand with a banana and an elephant. And a big cross right through it. I’ve never been to this Zoo Negara again ever since my last visit when I’m still 9-10 years old. And it’s a pretty good experience visiting again with a bunch of good friends, after 15 years later. Haha, it was same as fun.
