This is a family-oriented park aimed at educating the public about the endangered animals of Borneo an opportunity to get a glimpse of the wildlife up close. The wildlife park consists of two main sections namely zoological (animals) and botanical (plants). The botanical section provides good opportunities to see rare plant species but this was not in our agenda during the visit.
The park is open daily from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm, and is approximately 30 minutes’ drive from Kota Kinabalu; or approximately 15 km if your navigational preference is measured in distance.
Let's see some of my captures.
Little monkey moves a lot and it was a bit of a challenge to persuade him for a portrait shot.
Young proboscis doing the "moginggat" (betel nut chewing). Ok I bluffed, it's just some young leaves in his mouth.
All Monkeys and no Elephants?
Don't put a pilih bulu label on me just yet. Of course I like monkeys - all big and smalls - but I like all other animals at the zoo equally. Give me some time and I will feature them in my blog, too.
Ooopss! Not another monkey. Sorry for the distraction, this guy is not from Lok Kawi Zoo; he's happily living at KL Tower mini zoo.
The serval is an unusual looking (notably its big ears), medium sized cat found mainly in Africa. Nice variation to have it in Lok Kawi and it's good to 'see him in person'.
A white breasted eagle. Mice are released into its small cage to be preyed by this fast hunter. Not the kind of fair play don't you agree?
At certain time of the day the parrots are taken out into the open and you can take decent pics of them.
"Ling, lepas ko kasi mandi saya, saya kasi mandi ko pula nanti aah?". Debilang tu harimau betina.
Sorry folks, this is not a lion but I think he lost his way and ended up in my blog.
Thanks for reading, or rather viewing.
