Animal lovers rejoice: in November, Jerudong Park Playground will be staging “Animals in the Park”, a month-long event where visitors have the chance to get up close with exotic parrots, birds of prey, fancy rabbits and reptiles.

Some of the feathered divas on display include the green-winged macaw, cheeky cockatoos and cockatiels, as well as a majestic eagle.

Those looking for cuddles can cosy up to animals of the furrier variety, like the lop-eared rabbit, or its bigger cousin the Flemish Giant rabbit.

Kids and adults can also learn about the wildlife from the rangers on duty, who will also have reptiles like iguanas, turtles and tortoises on show.
