The Aviary Kingdom (Part 2/3)

Do you watch Harry Potter movies? When I stepped into the World of Darkness, I thought I saw those captivating species that carry messages and packages to Hogwarts, like Hedwig, Harry’s pet Snowy Owl and Errol, the Weasley’s very clumsy Great Gray Owl.

In terms of length, the Great Gray Owl is the largest owl in the world; however, its body is lighter than most other large owls.

The World of Darkness exhibit uses a reversed lighting technique which simulates “moonlit night” that induces these nocturnal characters to come alive in the day time.

Clothes make the man, feathers makes the bird. Feathers that display a fascinating array of colours.

Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? The world’s largest known egg is bigger than a rugby ball and could make […]

The Dark Side of Singapore

You suppose Singapore is a concrete jungle city, sprouted with skyscrapers and high-rise buildings. When dusk falls, streets are well-lit, clean and safe. The city is never too dark to explore. So, what’s so “dark” about this sunny island? Wait till you embark on the journey into the deep tropical forest in Mandai you’ll know.

Look, something is crossing our path in the dark. What’s the big deal? Stray cats are seen everywhere on the island. But hey? Cat? How could it be that big?! I heard someone saying “it’s a fishing cat, silly.”

Further down the trail, it seems like cats are getting bigger. What?! They’ve leopard spots?! Dumb lines.

You hear the hyena laughing and the stealthy leopard stalking you. Sensing someone looking over your shoulder, you turn around and notice a pair of glowing eyes. An icy chill run down your spine in the warm night. The beast is only a few metres away, stretching its muscles and getting ready to pounce on you! […]
