It was of course situated fairly a distance away from the usual tourist haunts, along Air Hangat Road (one of the original trunk road in Langkawi) closer to Kuah town than the rest of the scenic spots here. Fairly easy to find with several road signs directing intrepid souls.
First off was the special entrance fee of only RM15 (dude, this is a steal!). Senior citizens were allowed the Child rate of a low RM 6 (Yeayy for Warga Mas!). Then there is a few small pens of Hedgehogs, Rabbits and Guinea Pigs positioned before the entrance, so visitors could get in some free Squees beforehand.

|Guinea Pigs, which is a weird misnomer really as they aren't related to pigs nor are they from Guinea.|
Third would be the picture station directly in front of the entrance gate for photo opportunities with several super tame Macaws and Parrots, of you and your loved ones with them birdies. I have always appreciated birds from the Parrot and Macaw complex and at one time considered having one as a pet. The reality is however pretty alarming. Many of these birds live upwards of 20 years, therefore making keeping them a lifelong commitment. Knowing I may not have the ability to keep them healthy and well looked after certainly kept me off this path.

|Peek A Boo! I See You!|
|Flamingos! I bought a pack of bird seeds and it was fun to watch them sift it out of the water with their bills. Looking at them up close makes me realise how ridiculous their design is. All legs and neck! :)|
|Colourful pheasant with multi hued feathers|
|Ground brooding hen.|
|I love these furry fowls!|
|Wall of Orchids greeting us before entering the center enclosure.|
|Mated pair of white doves|
|Greater African Crested Crane. These perform a very complex courtship dance during love season.|
|Man made waterfall|
|Arapaima gigas pond.|
Then came the Cassowary & Ostrich enclosure. Got to feeding them seed and vegetable matter and it was fun. Who would have known they possessed such precision in aiming for the food bits. And long eyelashes too! Cute! Never once did any of them pecked the other while feeding.
Then there were some mammals.
|The balance of my animal feed went to these 2 jokers. These 2 were inseparable during my trip here. They shared a carrot, an apple and a few slices of orange.|
|What? Hahaha! These were pasted on many of the open air enclosures. I think in part to remind guests to not litter and to protect the denizens inside.|
