Singapore, 20 Jun 2012 — While the rest of the world gears up for the London Olympics, aspiring young Olympians got into the spirit of the games at Singapore Zoo’s Zoolympix 2012. Themed “Super Survivors”, this event aims to challenge our young contestants to see how they match up to our amazing creatures of the wild in various special talents and abilities.

Cheered on by her family, a young contender aims to memorise key places in the Elephants of Asia habitat to see how she fares against the elephant, one of the animals with the best memory in the world

Scurry, scurry like a naked mole rat in the quest to find all the carrots while blindfolded!

The popular Pollinator Pals station challenges participants to race against time to transfer as much ‘pollen’ as possible to flowers within 30 seconds.

Think you’re as “Fast-as a Patas”? This station will test your speed against the world’s fastest primate as you navigate through an obstacle course to the finish!
