She loves them

During our activity day at Tanjung Benoa, we decided to go to the Turtle Island but only for our daughter as we had not heard great reviews about the place. The visit was expensive (90$ plus donation) considering that it is not well-maintained with only few animals looking like sad captives. Even the glass bottom boat that takes the passengers to and fro was pathetic. You hardly get to see fishes properly from the glass. Still, our girl had gala time, holding turtles and birds and even wrapping the snake around as she wanted to copy whatever Mommy was doing! Although, Turtle Island turned out to be a Fad, Pihu really enjoyed it as she saw the animals for the first time in such close proximity.

As parents of a 2 year old toddler, the visit was memorable for us forever but yes, for others I would suggest, have a good meal somewhere instead of wasting your money here.

I want to play with Birdie 🙂

Her daddy made friends with her Birdie

Oooh it’s beautiful!

Is that real Mommy?

I too wanna wear it like Mommy

I still can’t believe she didn’t cry at all!

  1. Wow ! How exciting Roohi to have the turtle and the bird on your hand ! Not so sure about the snake but surely this would be an experience to remember forever, particularly for your kiddo. 🙂

  2. Great pictures. How nice it is to surround yourself with creations of Nature. Learning curve for cute young girl. 🙂

  3. Is the snake real & alive? Could you tell the name of the snake: It's really fascinating?

    Yes. it seems a gala time there. 🙂

  4. It was very exciting Somali because it was first time even I touched the wildlife. And believe me its an amazing feeling to feel the other fellow beings nature has given us. 🙂

  5. Yeah, I doubt if she does this once she grows up and understand the risk involved 😛 Even I was scared initially but here it was 100% safe so tried it.

  6. Ravish, that is real and alive and you get to wear them at many other places. They are tamed, with their mouth taped. I don't remember the name but it was python, so the real risk was not bite but strangulation. But the animals here were more like pets in a sorry state that I didn't actually like.

  7. oh my she is brave….and though the place is expensive I think from the pictures it looks like you guys enjoyed 🙂
