26 Oct 2021
Step into the world of pangolins at Night Safari with A Pangolin’s Tale and get to know these elusive mammals through a series of visual and experiential activities that will take place from 28 October to 31 December 2021. Meet Berani, one of the rescued Sunda pangolins rehabilitated by Mandai Wildlife Group. In 2018, Berani underwent a first-of-its-kind orthopaedic surgery to treat a fractured hind femur sustained in a road-related incident. He has made an astounding recovery since and can now be found nimbly navigating trees and vines in his new exhibit along Leopard Trail.
