The Weird and Wonderful
Spot some of the world’s weird and wonderful creatures at The Green Planet in Dubai. There’s the Cuban Amazon Parrot, distinguished by their modest size and red colouring on their head. Leaf Cutter Ants, known for their intricate fungal structures. And Sugar Gliders, nocturnal mammals that have a thin skin flap behind their arms that allows them to glide from tree to tree.
At The Green Planet you’ll learn all about the Rainforest from the top down. Starting with The Canopy where bats fly and sloths hang. Below that The Midstory, with monkeys, snakes and birds taking up residence. Down to the Forest Floor, with ants hard at work and gliders moving between the trees. Then finally the flooded forest, where a whole underwater world exists.
The Burmese Python is the largest snake species in the world. They reach a staggering 20-feet long and can weigh in as heavy as 200lbs. They are native to Southeast Asia and are easily spotted by their patterned skin. At The Green Planet, visitors get the chance to meet and even touch the resident pythons and boas.
