Marabou Stork – Is this One of the Ugliest Animals on the Planet?

This is a Marabou Stork, a bird we found at the Animal Resort Singapore.

With featherless head and with his lazy look it was walking here and there in his cage. It looks strange and it looks unhappy too. (for me)

Animal Resort Singapore (Farm Visit in a Weekend)

Not sure where to go in the weekend? With lot of kids friendly activities and places it is really difficult to decide where to go in Singapore with kids for a short break. It is same with us sometimes, but I planned a tour to Animal Resort Singapore from long time and final we visited!

For a toddler what else can make fun than animal sounds and animals! Our toddler is same and he loves farm animals and when he just started talking, he always muttered  ‘Old McDonald has a farm EiEiO…He has lot of farm animal toys and farm animal books, but he still loves watching farm animals live!

Animal Resort in Singapore is a really fun and interesting concept to bring the kids and there are number of farm animals live there. They live freely and suddenly you will shock with kampong style when geese are waddling and ducks say Quack Quack roaming around you!

Here are some of the moments from our animal farm visit.

After feeding the horse,we started watching other farm animals.This cassowary stays next to the horse,so we cannot miss greeting him!

See,he smiles!

Next is a small hut with rabbits.The time we visited this hut ,it was bit crowded,but we could watch rabbits.

Although other animals look lovely and stay freely,I feel these rabbits don’t like or do not enjoy their stay in these cages.With lot of people and with small space,it seems the rabbits are bit stressed! 🙁

Just after the rabbit house,it was a pond with fish.
