Reptile Exhibition

Sunday, February 3, 2008

I can't say I'm a reptile person so I am still unsure as to why I actually went for the reptile exhibition.

Maybe it's because Andrew and I have watched every movie available at the time and instead, decided to spend the money originally meant to watch a movie to go for the...

Reptile Exhibition @ The Rainforest, 1utama (30th January, 2008)

The Reptile Exhibition.

Let's just say Andrew and I got pretty conned of our RM8/=.

I mean, it's not too bad... but honestly! They may as well have stated "SNAKE EXHIBITION" as opposed to using "REPTILE" as though there were a lot of other reptiles!!

There were 10 times more snakes than the rest of the reptiles combined.

And one or two mammals out of nowhere; foxes & monkeys.

They actually set up a booth just right outside GSC (to promote the exhibition) and there was this little cute thing in a cage, a parrot, a really disgusting and super fat toad and some snakes.

Animals draw me in like how water does when you're in a desert, honest.

So naturally, I went to check it out. They were parading about how there are tons and tons of super cool reptiles to look at and also gave a preview of the "smallest monkey in the world".

Well, what we saw was the BABY of the smallest monkey in the world.

Spot the furball!

You know, they ought to specify that it's the smallest SPECIES of monkey in the world... some people might mistaken it as literally the SMALLEST MONKEY in the world.

Drew *cough* Drew.


Anyway, after dinner, we went to check out the exhibition and well, I did see SOME interesting stuff.

I took quite a lot of pictures of the snakes but I'll just put up the ones I find interesting.

The Reticulated Python.

Yes, I did my research. I can name mostly all of the reptiles I took picture of.

Mind, there were a billion types of pythons but I just snapped pics of those which looked huge.

I only just missed snapping a pic of this python yawning! It looked sooooo cool! It's fangs were HUGE and it sure can open up wide!

There wasn't a sign of what snake this actually was. It's due to the hopeless Malaysian signage. Inefficient and/or mostly never there.
Anyhow, I thought this snake has a rather cool head. Don't you?

Albino Cobra! Fierce!

Desert Horned Viper. Cool, eh?

The Blue Tongue Skink. One of the more interesting lizards I saw. I mean, I didn't have any other lizards besides the Iguana to compare it with after all.

A baby croc? Well, at least, I THINK it's a crocodile. They didn't state whether it was a croc or a gator so I'm just guessing based on what little facts I know about distinguishing crocodiles and alligators.

And here's a really interesting video of an animal I thought looked a lot like a raccoon but was actually a poor tailless fox:


I sound like a man in the video!! Hhahaha! ImageShack is spas. No clue what's up with the sound!


Anyway, that's one super sesat fox. And without a tail too! The poor thing.

And now... the highlight of my night!!

I have never once.. EVER... touched a snake in my entire life.

And I always wanted the experience and got really curious when I saw pictures of friends or strangers having snakes around their necks.

And finally now, I got my chance!!


At least now I can tell people I had a python around my neck before!! How cool is that?

Fearlessssss lehhhhh.

Honestly? Honest to honest honest?

I wasn't afraid at all. I guess I don't get too scared about these stuff. I pretty much trust trained animals.

Andrew on the other hand........

Not only did he not dare to stand too close (closest was probably about 5 metres away), he didn't dare touch my hand after I touched the snake!!!!

Talk about a scaredy-cat.

I mean, how odd is it that I'm completely unafraid of snakes and Andrew is extremely terrified?

Sometimes make me wonder who's the man in the relationship -.-

WELL! Boys will be boys.

I bet some of you boys out there are just as scared as Andrew is about snakes.

More of Me & the Mr. Python!

That was probably the only thing that I really enjoyed about the exhibition. And well, the fox was quite amusing as well. Might have gotten a slight headache afterwards though...

Anyway, just as we were leaving 1u, we stopped by to watch some Chinese Acrobatic Performance!

It was really fun to watch!!

Forgive me, but I'm a complete sucker for these shows. I get soooo easily entertained, haha.

The chick's got some crazy balance technique going on.

FYI, she's balancing some stuff on her head WHICH her two assistants threw up at her!

Honest, the bottom dude is freaking buff. He ought to try out for CHARMs.

I'd have to say, this day was certainly one of the more productive days I've had in 1u!

Oh, one more thing before I go...

Honestly, Malaysia has GOT to fix their signage problem.

Jeez, ya' think I might get RM50 if I submit this to Star?
