Photographer's Note

This beauty has been in the National Zoo for 5 years and she is waiting for a mate to arrive soon.

She was very active and very well aware of her surroundings. She was running around in her confined space and I was awed by this wonderful creature of God which I have the chance to view at close range. However, I am glad I am NOT inside there!

The National Zoo, 13 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur was once a virgin jungle and now it stands like an oasis amidst a concrete jungle. It was officially opened to the public in 1963. The zoo features about 400 species of Malaysian and exotic mammals, reptiles and birds. Of these, the majority are fish and bird species while about a hundred are mammals and the reptiles.
