Johor Bahru Zoo ( across the street (Jalan Gertak Merah) from the Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque.)

This is one of the oldest zoos in Malaysia. The zoo was built by Sultan Ibrahim in 1928 and became the private menagerie of the royal family. It was was opened to the public in 1962. A 5-hectare, run-down zoo that provides a dismal diversion to local and Western tourists. It only has birds and mammals on display.  They also have bird shows and animal feeding time.  The bird show is a must watch. There is a pond inside the zoo where you can rent peddle boats as well as a children's playground.  There are eatries where food is reasonably priced.  The elephants arev being trained and can been seem moving outside their enclosures.
