This is the continuation of our Qingming weekend outing. I was given a few choices of places to visit and I picked the Shanghai Zoo (as if we didn't have enough walking on the previous day!). Anyway, we were all raring to go and both daddy and mummy didn't disagree. The weather was just too perfect for long-walk outings like this. Mummy packed some food along and we had a picnic there :)
Entrance fee was RMB40 (RM20+) for adults and RMB20 (RM10+) for children above 1.3m in height
The first animal we looked forward to seeing was the giant panda.
Such a big zoo but only 1 panda? It was sad to see the lonely panda all by itself in such a big enclosure.
Red panda... Many of the animals here were kept in glass enclosures, which was good because we got to see them close-up.
The zoo houses a large collection of primates. This gorilla entertained us well with its antics... from eating to prancing around and even thumping its chest with its two fists haha :D
A very aged double-humped camel... it's so old that when it shook its body, the two humps tilted to the side of the body and looked as if they could just fall off!
Guess how long did we spend here? 8.30am to 5.30pm (5pm was the closing time)! Yes, we spent 9 hours in a zoo but I didn't feel tired at all and asked to come again :)
