      wow, there is more plants than last time I was there. Even the fence is different, before all the wood fence was chain-link fence.

      I can't remember if there are 2 or 3 cheetah exhibits, and this was one photo that I wasn't 100% sure whether it actually held cheetahs at all. The space for the big cats is so large at the zoo that it's difficult to see where it starts and stops.

      They used to have two exhibits, but I think the other one was split into two, so the zoo could house more cheetahs. Last time I was there the zoo had cubs, even though they did not look like cubs, but they were hard to spot. The only one visible was the male (I think) which was in this exhibit. I have a pic of him in the gallery.

      We had a tremendously tough time finding any cheetahs in the huge meadows. In the end there was only the one cat that we saw, and that one was stretched out in the tall grass.
