Dinosaur Encounter At Kuantan’s Zoo Teruntum With Its Very Own Hobbit House!

A Hybrid Zoo With 30 Life-Sized Dinosaur Replicas

Zoo Teruntum

your childhood days at Zoo Teruntum. Featuring 30 life-sized dinosaur replicas in an exhibition called The Dinosaur Encounter Experience, your kids will love immersing themselves in this Jurassic Park-like experience. If that isn’t enough, the zoo also has a Hobbit House hidden beneath a mossy roof and flower bushes, with a grassy stairway leading to its porthole-like front door, perfect for fans of The Lord Of The Rings!

Though its smaller in size compared to other state zoos, Zoo Teruntum has a decent variety of live animals, such as monkeys, snakes, paddy horses, ostrich, and crocodiles. Young animal lovers can learn more about these animals by visiting their exhibits, or opt for a ride on the ponies – a service that the zoo also provides. With the recent addition of its fun-filled Dinosaur Encounter exhibit, this family-friendly attraction lets visitors of all ages interact with live animals and extinct species.

Tickets are priced at RM$25 for adults and RM$22 for children.
