3. Meet the stars! Pedro, the elephants and rainforest friends
Singapore zoo also has animal shows to enjoy. The showtime is in the morning and afternoon, and you are advised to check out the show’s schedule because some of it can be temporarily suspended.
You can meet Pedro the sea lion in the Splash Safari Show. You are going to get wet with waters that Pedro will splash on you; just like its show name. But trust me, it’s a fun and wild experience of a lifetime.
You can also witness how the big and gentle giant elephants do some attractions with their trainers. These beautiful animals are really a grand thing to see while you are here. You can also play with domesticated animals like dogs at the Rainforest Kidzworld Amphitheatre.
And if you fancy to meet the animal friends from the rainforest, go to the Shaw Foundation Amphitheatre that is the main amphitheatre of the zoo to watch theatrical acts done by actors and animals with the story of how people and animals work together to protect the rainforest from the poachers. It is fun and educational, too! You won’t regret watching it (trust me).
