Mammals
If you're a kid between the ages of 5 and 10, join us for our...MAD LESSON ON MAMMALS!

Do mammals still live in Singapore’s wild habitats or do they only exist at our zoo? Join us to find out! You will learn some fascinating facts about mammals--where they live, what they eat and how they protect themselves from predators. This MAD lesson will also include information about how you can be part of the solution to protect our environment and wild habitats.

In February 2009, we had 3 workshops on mammals. Kids learned about the characteristics of mammals, the diverse habitats in which they live, the food they eat and the threats they face from people. The kids watched a short snippet of David Attenborough’s “The Life of Mammals” and also learned about mammals which live in Singapore. They enjoyed a video on our local colugo. Uncle Andrew also showed the kids skulls of some mammals—a monkey, colugo, and slow loris, and a preserved specimen of a pangolin, all of which were on loan from the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research. The pangolin ‘ornament’ had been traded illegally and confiscated by the authorities and given to the museum. The kids made colugo wall-hangings and wrote pledges for positive action towards wildlife.
