Singapore Zoo - 4

Today will be the last post of the Singapore Zoo series. And in this post, will feature the largest land animal that is alive today ie the elephants! Most elephants are from Africa and the most visible difference would be their ears. African elephants have bigger ears. These featured below are from India and they have smaller ears.

Was at an elephant show at the zoo and the elephants performed some tricks that delighted the audience.



In one of the tricks, this elephant was trying to place back the straw hat back on the man.



And finally the elephant got close enough to place the hat on the man's head :)



Finally when all the tricks are done, the elephants were gathered in a row to curtsy to the audience :) And you should have heard the applause from the audience! No wonder the elephants did the bow so well!



Hope you enjoyed this series.

Well it is a nice picture of reality. The animals put to work for man. It is a shame that they are better taken care of in this environment than in their natural one.


Surprise, surprise, surprise. It's me!

I'm torn about elephants performing like this (all animals really)....but we know in the wild they are not looked after. And elephants do seem to have a sense of fun.

I'm personally against the concept of a zoo (or a circus) and so I refuse to go to one.

That said, your photos looks like the elephants are quite beautiful. I hope the trainers are nice to the elephants and using positive reenforcements (rewards) to train them, instead of negative reenforcement (punishment)
