Spec­tac­u­lar and scaly

New Straits Times - - Jom! -

GET set for a rep­tile rev­o­lu­tion at the Sin­ga­pore Zoo and River Sa­fari as a new rep­tile ex­hibit and home to an ar­ray of re­mark­able rep­tiles dubbed Rep­Topia is un­veiled. Ev­ery week­end from Satur­day to June 26, vis­i­tors will en­joy close en­coun­ters with rep­tiles as they dis­cover these spec­tac­u­lar and scaly crea­tures through a spec­trum of en­gag­ing ac­tiv­i­ties.

The di­verse range of ac­tiv­i­ties in­cludes in­ter­ac­tion with a rep­tile keeper for an en­light­en­ing an­i­mal en­rich­ment ses­sion, meet-and-greet with the Rep­Topia mas­cot, a hand­some chameleon, and hands-on fun with rep­tile-in­spired craft­work.

Part of the Rep­Topia ex­pe­ri­ence is the 13th edi­tion of Zoolympix, themed Zoolympix 2017: Rep­tile Rev­o­lu­tion, where vis­i­tors are in­vited for an ex­pe­ri­ence de­signed to turn their ewws into awws! Meet Jose Cairos, deputy head keeper, her­petol­ogy, Wildlife Re­serves Sin­ga­pore, to learn more about our scaly friends.

This is an ex­cit­ing trail with games and ac­tiv­i­ties to dis­cover the skills, de­fen­sive moves as well as cool facts about these charm­ing and awe­some rep­tiles and get you to change your per­cep­tion about them.

At Rep­Topia, vis­i­tors see how these crea­tures crawl on their bel­lies, smell with their tongues and sleep with their eyes open!

So make a date with the pan­ther chameleon, Ga­boon viper and other equally amaz­ing rep­til­ian friends to learn more about them through ex­cit­ing and en­gagFest ing ac­tiv­i­ties. Camp Fest 2017 of­fers an op­tion for RiverBed & Break­fast at River Sa­fari, an ex­cit­ing tour pack­age with overnight stay in the com­pany of man­a­tees.
