This zoo was simply pathetic. The smell was awful. The cages were tiny and cramped. This place was a big disappointment.

It's very sad that this city sitting on money, building skyscrapers and shopping malls can not afford to build proper zoo and take proper care of poor animals who live in tiny cages in such bad conditions.They need world animal protection visit..
