Kuala Lumpur Bird Park

Sergey Dolya • 5 minutes read • April 4th, 2016
The largest bird park in the world is located in 

Kuala Lumpur

. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that, throughout the entire 19 acre (8 hectare) territory, there are no cages and the birds fly freely. The only fence that keeps the feathered inhabitants inside is a giant net that stretches over the park. The proof of the project's success is that many birds become so well adapted to their conditions that they breed naturally in captivity - with the construction of nests, hatching chicks, etc. A walk through the park is a delight . . . 

Bird Park KL

is divided into 4 zones. One of them is home to only parrots. There are passages between the zones which are separated by "rain" (a curtain of beaded strings).
By the way, you can feed the animals here!
However, only special food is sold – this is a jar of coconut milk:
There is an artificial reservoir in the heron and flamingo zones. 
Peacocks eats papaya. I love papaya but I have never seen how it grows. The other day, in the Seychelles where I holidayed with my wife, I finally found out and will show you in the next review:
I often see peacocks in various zoos but this was the first time I saw one with a fluffed tail:
The Hornbill is a symbol of the park. They seemed to feel their own importance and significance:
This man went dangerously close for a photo, even though we were warned not to come close to the hornbills.  They can be aggressive and have a strong bite with their beaks. 
And this bird is something between a parrot and a vulture:
In fact, this is a usual parrot, whose neck was plucked by someone:
This is an incubator for chicks:
In fact, these chickens are bred to feed the eagles living nearby:
Here’s an ostrich:
There are several species of birds that still fenced in aviaries: 
Just have a look at this owl's claws:
This is a mouse deer. I did not know that they existed! It is the size of a Chihuahua but it’s a deer:
There is a 

Butterfly Park KL

in walking distance of the Bird Park, inhabited by more than 6,000 species of butterflies. There is also a large net stretched over the top, like the bird park, stopping the butterflies from flying away.
Butterflies are varied and there are some very beautiful ones. 
There are also unusual insects. Not very pretty but rare and worthy of attention:
If you come to Malaysia, I strongly recommend visiting this place. Malaysian parks are far from the grim zoos where all the animals are caged and locked away. It's like a safari, where you can observe the animals in their natural environment. Children will be especially delighted.
