Fresh from the laser tag event with fellow bloggers last week over in ICity, we were introduced to True Discovery, tagged to be the largest reptile collection in Malaysia. True Discovery was just a few steps away from Laser Warzone in ICity, Shah Alam. Being someone really interested with new stuffs, and believe me, having so many reptiles under one roof is really a new experience for me!

Upon entering True Discovery, we were introduced to the place by Francis who was really an expert in everything reptilian. He's such a "guru" that every reptile and animal in True Dicovery was explained in detail without him referring to anything. Hats off to Francis for being such a wonderful host that morning.

I managed to capture quite a few unique animals being showcased there, and there was even a very rare occasion of seeing a snake shed its skin. Scroll down to the bottom for this rare video. For now, do have a look at some of the photos I took. I apologize for not remembering all the names of the reptiles.
|#1 This lizard was left to wander around|
|#2 A rather active reptile, running all over the place|
|#3 A two headed tortoise|
|#4 Kiss the frog and get a prince?|
|#5 I was told this scorpion is really poisonous|
|#7 Check out how this snake blends in|
|#8 How green can you go?|
|#9 Staring right into your soul|
|#10 How's that for some really scary croc eyes.|
On top of just "oooh"ing and "aah"ing at the exhibits there, we were all given a chance to get really close and personal with some snakes, a parrot, and some birdies. It was really cool that they let us play with these animals. I have always wanted to get a chance to curl a snake around my upper body, and at True Discovery, I got my chance! Janice, who's normally afraid of reptiles also braved up to get a picture. Check awesome us below.

Coming back to the rare experience I was talking about at the beginning of this post, we got to see a snake shed it's skin. This was happening real time in front of our eyes, and we were told a snake only sheds its skin a few times in a year. Check out a short video I managed to capture below.
For an entrance fee of only RM18/person, this was a really good place to get up and close with reptiles. Even if you're not a fan, do drop by for the experience! Check out MilkADeal's latest deal [Rm18 for 2 with pictures] for this place.
