Saleng Zoo is (from what I know) a privately owned zoo near Saleng, Johor. It is roughly midpoint between Senai and Kulai. The signage is a little blurred, so if you’re driving a little too fast, or lost your concentration temporalily, you might miss it.
Entry is RM12 for adults and RM6 for children. I visited Saleng Zoo two weeks ago, and I must say that I’m quite impressed with the place. It’s not overly commercialised like Zoo Negara (the National Zoo) and the state zoos.

This Siamese Crocodile is really huge, probably the next closest creature you can relate to as a modern day dinosaur.
The Malayan Tiger, a.k.a Pak Belang.
A lion cub. This isn’t a zoomed picture. There’s nothing to stop you from touching the cub, except a sound state of mind.
