RIVER SAFARI [adventure in the riverbank]

Clearing up some 2013 backlogs… lazy me finally got down to editing all the photos from River Safari. It was a very enjoyable trip. River Safari to me is like the ZOO + AQUARIUM + NIGHT SAFARI {all in one} but WITHOUT the smell, the lack of variety, the extreme darkness. The only bad thing is that the glasses are too reflective and hinders with photo-taking. Also, the day in which we went to, the entire river boat ride and the animals around it was shut down. So we missed out on that. But it’s ok. We enjoyed ourselves plenty.

The great thing about the River Safari is it’s diversity based on the animals in the river, banks and its surrounding lands. I feel like I am brought back to a section of the world in the Wind in the Willows. The sheer diversity and the landscape makes the trip a superb one, and you really don’t expect to see such a place in little ole’ Singapore!

There are also interesting information scattered around. Unlike the zoo, these information are more interesting, showing human’s interaction with these animals, and the history of the two.

below are the /tortoises and turtles/

Swordfishes!

Just look at their beautiful whiskers and other features! I feel like a student again, chasing the animals with the cameras and learning so many thing (which I will no doubt forget in time)

Did you spot the crocodile in the picture above? They sure know how to hide! There will be more crocodile photos below.

The above are the spotted sting rays. The below are the stingrays you see in the video I posted last year.

/cranes/

The cranes are interesting. I was quite unwilling to leave them… which can be said about the other animals too… but well. We saw the white cranes first, but at the far background of the left side were two black ones. They look like bad guys (I guess I am such a kid, lols), and as soon as this black one approached, it spread its wings as if to warn the others off, and the white one in the pond quickly retreated and joined the others on the land.

/crocodiles/ as promised! I am calling these two lovers even though they probably aren’t

you probably saw the one below before. It’s rather cute in the photo, it’s crawling underwater, and if you see in real life, its pretty interesting. I don’t want to join it though.

In between the animals, I enjoyed looking at the /landscape/, which showed a whole new Singapore to me!

https://briefeananna.wordpress.com/

The different animals that are featured in the River Safari were catagorised according to the river they belong to. That makes it all the more interesting. The concept and design is interesting, the only thing is I wished they had completed everything before opening and avoid the disappointment of many who came before us (even we were slightly disappointed with closed sections but at least we came knowing that everything is built, and not cheated by advertisements)

The photo below wasn’t in true colours. I changed the leaves to yellow as they look better. And also changed the shade of the building a little.

/pleasant/

Notice there are two in the photo.https://briefeananna.wordpress.com/

/pandas/
And finally~~ We came for the pandas, but at the end of the day, I love the red pandas more than the giant pandas.

https://briefeananna.wordpress.com/

Food for the giant pandas. You can see me and my friend here. Like I said, the glasses are too reflective.

Giant Panda  Kaikai. Jiajia I only saw through the live feed while she played with the benches in her room.
