If you love nature, you’d like the natural surroundings, which are pretty part natural tropical vegetation, supposedly to give a simulated forest habitat ambiance for the animals and visitors too…

Besides these amazing animals, the zoo also boasts of a rich, healthy and cool green atmosphere throughout the entire park with its rich collection of exotic and rare plants. The thick foliage is an attempt to mimic the rainforest so that the animals would feel a sense of the wild. Also, the greens could help cool the place on very hot days.

Thanks to Melaka Zoo for having us there. It is indeed a memorable experience for me and my siblings to be near to the animals that we love so much. We had learned different types of animals from local and overseas here at Melaka Zoo. The most enjoyable moment is when I could feed and cuddle so many cute rabbits roaming at the small area.
