Sue and I went to Doha zoo for a visit.

Entry fee was 5 riyals each or about $2. It was a pleasant place to visit for us humans - waterways, ponds, etc. Good variety of animals including cheetahs, lions, tigers, ... Mainly African and Asian. They did have some emus - not sure why.

Zoos have their place for education, research etc but when you see a fully grown cheetah in a gage about 3m x 5m just staring aimlessly at the sky - you can't help but feel for some of the animals. We went in winter - not sure how the animals survive in the heat of summer.

Anyway here are some photos...
