The Malacca Zoo

The Malacca Zoo
The Malacca Zoo is located at Air Keroh. If you are heading toward Malacca City from Air Keroh Toll, the Malacca Zoo is on your left. It's only 5 minutes drive from Air Keroh Toll.

The Malacca Zoo opens 7 day a week, visiting hours is from 9 am to 6 pm. The parking fee is RM 2 per entry. The entrance fees are RM 7 for adults, RM 4 for children and Rm 2 for students in uniform.

The Malacca Zoo also opens at night on Friday, Saturday, eve of public holidays and school holidays. The admission fees are RM 10 for adults, RM 8 for children and RM 4 for students in uniform. The visiting hours is from 8 pm to 11 pm.

Malayan Tiger
There are around dozens species of animals in Malacca Zoo including birds, mammals, amphibians and reptiles. Visitors would be amazed of watching the variety of animals. My most eye-catching animal was the Malayan tiger.

According to the Malacca Zoo's information, the construction of the Malayan tiger caves cost 2.8 million. Malaysia's low-income people after toiling for a lifetime, only afford to have shelters which cost tens of thousands ringgits. The Malaysian is simply inferior to the animals. Is this the 1Malaysia which Prime Minister Datuk Sri Najid always mentions nowadays?

Grant's Zebra
The Grant's zebra paced back and forth in front of me, as if a model performed a fashion show. Compared to the boundless African grassland, the stable of this Grant's zebra seemed to be too narrow. The Grant's zebra was unable to gallop speedily. It had no alternative but to walk slowly.

I was uncertain about the bird in the picture because I couldn't find the description board. If I wasn't mistaken it should be a seagull. Fortunately, this seagull was just posing in front of the lens and unlike the seagulls in Perth, Australia which chased after tourists. Otherwise, I would be severely injured by the seagull.

Malacca Zoo Tram
In case you are not willing to take a walk, you can board a tram which moves around the zoo. You can sit on the tram and enjoy watching all kinds of wildlife in the zoo.
