Watery Wednesday: Polar Bears in Singapore


The Polar bears have a great time in the Singapore zoo. Their enclosure is chilled and the water is so inviting. They are among the most visited animals, partly the viewing area is cool and partly it is such an entertaining sight to see the giant polar bear swim. The visitors love it after the humidity and the heat outside.

There was once when the polar bear played second fiddle. I can't remember if it was in the Singapore Zoo or in the Auckland Zoo, because I went to both when the Panda bears were on loan. People were flocking to see the Pandas. There was a cartoon which was very clever. No one was visiting the polar bears, they decided to paint their eyes and bodies black hoping to attract some attention.

Fellow blogger Ngao is right about what the consequences would be if the glass broke. I used to worry about the glass at the viewing area of the big wild cats. That would really be scary. Some children and grown up idiots tap on the glass even though there were big signs saying "Do not tap the glass."

Here's my nieces and nephews have a fantastic time. Some day kids, you can come back and take another photo and see how much you have grown.
