Taiping Zoo (11) : African Savanna

I almost forgotten to continue my Taiping Zoo series.... It's time to continue on with the local Animal Planet Series (which is Free Of Charge) :P

Giraffe. This is the only giraffe left in the zoo at the moment. When I looked back at the photos taken 2 years ago, there were 3 giraffes. (The flamingo mengacau only.. obstructing the view.. Must piak with sotong).

I guess the giraffe can sustain neck fracture easily since they have long necks :P At first I thought giraffes will have more cervical vertebraes then human beings since their necks are so long, but I was wrong. Giraffes have exactly the same number of cervical vertebraes as human. It is just that their cerival vertebraes are extremely elongated.

Long-horned ankole cattle. I love to look at the horns, which is one of the largest and most dramatic horns. There is only one ankole cattle left at the moment. I remember there were four previously..

Zebra, which reminds me of zebra crossing :)

The three musketeers :)

to be continued...

Thanks. Talking about 3 musketeers.. paiseh to tell u that I only know the existence of "The 3 Musketeers", but dunno what is the story about :P Very suku hoh?

I guess the sotong leader is the giraffe loh.. hahahha. Oops, better retract back that statement.. The group leader is the giraffe. The sotong leader is busy looking for little sotongs to piak the kaka caucau flamingo :P

carcar,
TQ TQ my beloved sotong carcar. Oops, still cannot resist to talk about sotong. Sotong have to Relax today.. LOL

Sotong can't be found is Zoo leh.. but it can definitely be found in seafood restaurant (ouch !!)

pinkcotton,
Hehhee.. congrats congrats :) Aiyak, got top 10 ranking one meh?

Yeah loh, the flamingo want to chuk fong tao mah.. Want to be famous.... That's why loh :)

day-dreamer said...

Yeah, same with carcar, I wanted to ask how come I cannot see sotong one?? :P

L B said...

LOL at all the demands for a sotong! Hey Chen, got sotong costume? I can pretend to be exhibit A, yeah?!..

ps: I love Zebras.. don't like Zebra crossings so much, but Zebras.. they are cute. How come no one uses them as Horses?

domesticgoddess said...

your camera zoom is powerful eh... coz last time i went there i couldn't get such close-up pics...

Chen said...

day dreamer,
Hahhaha, this is Taiping Zoo leh, not KLCC Aquaria nor Seafood Restaurant :P

lb,
Sotong is now the hot topic & cannot blame them for being sotsot ;) Who starts the sotong craze? Wah.. If I have the sotong costume, u really volunteer to become exhibit ah?

Your Zebra question very cheem again.. I guess people scares of the stripes on zebras body cos remind them of .... jail? :P

domestic goddess,
nyek nyek.. one of my gadget has optical zoom 10x :P

L B said...

I think I can safely point my finger at you, the Sotong of all sotongs.. All Hail Sotong Chen..

Yeah, maybe you're right. Go straight to Jail one, can't pass Go, and no collect $200.. No wonder.

Chen said...

lb,
Err... I start the craze meh? I only remember wanting to piak someone with sotong earlier on ... and then somehow, the sotong king started the sotong thingy..(followed by the sotsot hits by Carcar).

Yeahlah, that's why zebra is not as popular as horse cos of that :P

angel said...

day-dreamer said...

may said...

Sotong, oh my Sotong...

I think zebras didn't make it as horses because they kept stopping to let people cross... err... zebra-crossing... no?

Chen said...

agus,
Really aiyoh loh.
kakkkaa. I like the way u put it :P

zero impact,
aiyak, remember to wash your hands before eating KFC, or else u might end up licking all the bugs on your finger.. Jie Jie dowan siudidi to get stomachache later on leh :P

may,
Who is the Sotong? :P

Err.. I thought it's the other way round, cos they keep on crossing the road, hence called zebera crossing? Gosh, sotsot liao.. I'm talking sotong again..

Simple American said...

Love the zoo. I used to take my kids when they are little.

Just looked at your profile. Saw Anira mui there. I love Mui Yin Fong movies and concert videos. So sad she is gone.

Chen said...

SA,
Yeah, zoo is not just for little kids, but for all ages group ;)

Yeah, she was indeed a very talented singer & actress. No one can replace her :( Sad she is gone...
