The Family at Zoo Taiping

I would have really liked to blog about Zoo Taiping itself because I do like zoos; I did a nice post (if I do say so myself) on Zoo Johor Baru back in June.

But then I looked at the photos taken on the day we went to Zoo Taiping and realised there's not much I can blog about,as less than 30% of the photos are of the animals; the rest are of us fooling about. So I guess those are the kind of photos I will mostly put up in this post; hence, the post is aptly titled 'The Family at Zoo Taiping'. 

Beware, though; if you don't like reptiles, do scroll over the photo of the fat alligator real fast.

Let's start with my favourite animal moment: adorable elephants cooling off in their pool (I secretly think they were putting on a show for us, just because they're Rayyan's absolute fave), and we'll go from there.

And I must put this photo below early on, too! Seriously, the elephants must loved us; look at how they're lining up next to us for the family photo.

More photos down here!

They thought my jumping photo was a complete failure (Hazri's face said it all), but really, look at this photo and tell me how utterly wrong they were. That's graceful, right there.

I did not end this post on a high note, did I? I mean, the photo of my selfie with elephants bathing isn't the best. But I hope the idea that my family had the greatest time at the zoo was conveyed through these photos!

We went for Zoo Taiping Night Safari the night before too, actuallymy nephew Rayyan really love animals, and so does his sister Aryabut it was too dark to snap any photo. The zoo at night isn't as exciting as during the day, though. Add the facts that (1) the night safari ticket is slightly more expensive and (2) it's dark thus you won't get to see too many things, it's understandable if you feel inclined to skip it. 
That being said, I personally found it to be quite an enjoyable experience, providing you just sit back and enjoy it, and appreciate it. So, yes, I would still recommend you trying out the night safari if you ever have an extra night in Taiping with nothing to do.

Do you love Zoo Taiping, or zoos in general, as much as we do? If yes, share with me your best zoo story as I would love to hear it!
