Kweky’s Kinder Zoo Adventure

Last Saturday, I was invited on a media event at Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle inside Manila Zoo. I brought Little Kweky with me to be my partner in crime in taking pictures and to roam around the zoo which he really enjoyed since heโ€™s an animal person. So let me give you brief information about Kinder Zoo.

Kinder Zoo’s entrance.

Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle is an interactive zoological facility. Most of the exotic animals on site can be fed and held. It is a rewarding experience where visitors go home with the greater appreciation for endangered animals.

The media event is about knowing the two very illustrious animals in the zoo. Itโ€™s Mr. T, the Sulcata Tortoise and Hyacinth Macaw.The event was hosted by 2 DJ’s from DZME and Mr. Pocholo Gonzales. They are the greatest speaker I ever heard since my collage days. Never been to events like this for so long so I really don’t know what to expect. They are really humorous and they caught my son’s attention when the event started, that’s why I really love them. Also, Mr. Pocholo Gonzales let us experience his wonderful talent of dubbing (I don’t know if my term is right. Please let me know if it’s wrong *wink.). He’s known to voice over Kiko Matsing and Pong Pagong of batibot.

Let’s get to know them better. So here’s more information about the Mr. T and the Macaws.

Mr. T is a 50 year old Sulcata Tortoise and he is a land dwelling turtle. The sulcata will live over 100 years old and its shell will grow over 1 meter in length and weight over 40 kilos. These tortoises eat grass, plants and cactus. Unlike other turtles, these tortoises are not shy and actually look forward to being with humans. You can feed a sulcata in Kinder Zoo but watch out for his beaks he can break a carrot into two without any hassle so he can also break your little fingers. You have nothing to worry Mr.T would not bite you on any purpose.

Now, I want you to meet another fella in the zoo. The Hyacinth Macaw.

Hyacinth Macaw or Hyacinthine Macaw is the largest Macaw and the largest flying parrot in the world. It is a parrot native to Brazil. These parrots are considered endangered numbering approximately 4000 in the wild. The Hyacinth Macaw are know the clowns of the parrot family due to its yellow skin that looks like they are constantly smiling and their natural disposition of being inquisitive and playful. Just be careful of their beak. They are so powerful with a crushing strength of 3000 lbs. per inch. Your fingers will be a matchstick to them.

Do you know that?

There are 7 macaws in the big aviary for the past 5 years to make them grow and mature. Sometime this year, Kinder Zoo will no longer display the macaws that have paired up and will set them up for breeding it; itโ€™s a new breeding facility.

Kinder Zooโ€™s advocacy is to โ€œBreed these endangered speciesโ€.

Meet the Macaws.

So after meeting them we went photo ops with the animals but we already took pictures before the event started since we’re early birds (early bird catches the early worm *giggles).
