I dont have much to say...I will let the pictures do the talking....oooOOoo I forgot to mention the Sand Cat, I have never heard of it before and I didnt get a picture of it because it was in the nocturnal house and it was really in the dark, but google it it is the coolest thing. I want one lol.
also I read today that an Austrian businessman had a private animal collection that grew out of control and he approached the then ruling Sheikh, Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, to donate a piece of land for housing the animals. That was the initial zoo and over the years it has expanded, and is currently exppanding more. The collection includes more than four thousand animals from exotic reptiles, birds, and mammals from all over the world. With close to a million visitors flocking the the AWPR (Al Ain Wildlife Parek and Resort), it has grown to become an international hot spot for animal lovers and a must see tourist attraction in the U.A.E.

ENJOY THE PICTURES!
