A stampede was going on today, but not the Africa one. It's a Wildlife Stampede with world renowned Dr Jane Goodall. It was her who has been my inspiration to maybe one day work with primates, particular with my favourite Orang Utan.
Naked Hermit Crabs were at Botanic's Children Garden to witness the event. As we soon came to realised... we're a little over-aged... seeing all the kids around... Well, who cares! We were there to have fun! And here's a shot of the crabbies
From left to right - November, July, Me, Chay Hoon, May and Marcus.
And here's our naked butts! (Both pictures courtesy of July)
We all then gathered around the starting point to await our special guest and soon enough, she arrived.
Have been reading about Dr Goodall for a long time, but seeing her in person is just a different and great feeling.
After a short message by the emcee and Dr Goodall, we started the wildlife stampede - a parade around the garden, which ended at the stage with a series of performances.
Here's a look at the 'wildlife' of the parade.
All dressed up in vibrant colours.
A cute little turtle and ...
Here's the little guy in that costume.
Spidey and Duckie
Cats and Zebras in harmony
Camel and a penguin following behind
Bees and a little butterfly. Of course there were alot more. Doubt I can fit everything in and I was too happy fooling around that taking pictures was not my top agenda. Haha...
Look at the huge crowd!
Eventually, the event ended around 7pm with a presentation to ten of the best dressed groups/individuals, which definitely did a great job. A long day and walk but all the crabbies had a great day out!!
