Visitors to River Safari can now pay money to poke panda poo

Visitors to River Safari can now pay money to poke panda poo



Latest tourist attraction in Singapore gives new meaning to “You gotta check this shit out”.

By Belmont Lay
May 15, 2014 Lifestyle


Visitors to River Safari who have had enough of the usual walking around and taking pictures of animals from afar can now embark on an experiential learning tour: By paying money to poke panda poo.

To be opened to the public in June 2014, sifting through poo is part of the park’s latest tour called “Be a Panda Researcher”. The tour will consist of activities to let visitors learn how researchers track pandas in the wild by inspecting their poo, paw prints, and other markings.

This is what the Channel News Asia reporter, who went down to, erm, check some shit out, had to say about the experience:





“You’d be surprised to learn that panda poo isn’t as smelly as it looks. In fact, there is hardly a strong odour because pandas are not meat eaters.”

“Now after I poked through this poo sample here, I discovered this panda ate bamboo, apples and carrots.”
River Safari website said that by getting down and dirty to “dissect panda poo”, participants could “appreciate the hard work that goes into meeting Kai Kai and Jia Jia’s special dietary needs”.

Besides poo-poking, visitors will get to go on a second tour called “Fishy Business”.

Since it’s the River Safari, visitors will get to see what goes into keeping the water tanks healthy for animals, such as the manatees and the arapaimas, that are part of the Amazon Flooded Forest exhibit.

They will also manually prepare meals of fish, shrimp, and vegetables.


Source: River Safari website

The 90-minute daily tours each cost S$39 for adults and S$29 for children, inclusive of admission into the park.

The two tours are launched in commemoration of 50 years of tourism development and promotions in Singapore.

The tours are recommended for children aged nine and above, and reservations can be made online.

Gloves will be provided.

River Safari wants to earn more profits by selling panda's poo.

Heard that the panda's poo can also be made into different handicrafts.
So, beware when you go there buy soveniers.
