      Fantastic photo of my favorite animal. I am strongly considering adding Chester Zoo to my September England/France/Spain trip.

      Glad you like it,
      I hadn't been to Chester for about 4 years so when I went at Easter I was really pleased to see the Cheetah enclosures housing 4 cats with very good habitat
      I spent 90 minutes just watching/photographing these guys

      Going out on a limb here but from the funky hairstyle, I think this is the female (not the animal in your other photo), and Chester only have one female.

      Correct this is Kinky-tail Chesters female.

      Any word on number two been shipped? Think she is still in Saudi Arabia?

      Thanks for the gender steer on these
      Wonder why I assumed chester had a single male & three females, I take it it's the other way round

      Do it! :D

      It's not got the cat collection it once had, but you'll see Asian Lion, Sumatran Tiger, Jaguar, Serval and these very nice Soemmerring's Cheetahs.

      And it's got a fantastic general collection and is overall the best zoo in the UK. ;)

      EDIT: And if you do go - let us know - would be fascinated to get a North American opinion of the place first-hand! Mind you, I'm away myself for a fair chunk of September.

      Yes, and I was looking online and the city itself looks very quaint and picturesque, which is great for photography too. Found a nice looking hotel (The Mill) right near the train station. I am 85% certain I will book two nights there and spend the full day in between at Chester Zoo.
