Langkawi Wildlife Park
The Langkawi Wildlife Park, previously known as Bird Paradise, is a zoo which houses many species of birds and animals. Established in the year 2002, at Jalan Ayer Hangat, it spreads over five acres of land. The park is roofed from entry to exit which makes it excellent for days with less than ideal weather.
The zoo hosts about 150 types of small animals and birds from Russia, Africa and Australia which are divided into several sections. The most interesting part of this park is a walk-in aviary with a manmade cascade, where about 1500 birds live and fly around. Some birds are very friendly and will happily perch on your hand if you have some birdfeed. Large flightless birds such as the Cassowary, Emu and Peacocks are also nearby. The Reptile and Mammal section will let you embrace giant pythons and see cute Saharan desert Fennec foxes. The Reptile Section also has prehistoric crocodiles, docile iguanas and turtles. The Birds of Prey section has brahminy kites and white bellied eagles. The eagle feeding show is a popular attraction and should not be missed. If you are feeling gutsy enough, then these raptorial birds can also perch on your hands. In the primate section, you can feed tiny vervets, long tailed macaques, and a number of other colourful birds by buying a variety food bag at the entrance.
The tour ends with a souvenir shop where chocolates, perfumes, colourful batik prints are available at duty free rates. The crystal gallery near Aviary section also sells glittering crystal jewelleries and souvenirs.
