Couldn’t have asked for any better weather for visiting the Cincinnati Zoo on a fine Saturday evening. Having been sort of sponsored by my college, the University of Cincinnati, it was an amazing experience. The best part was the Cheetah Show, where they let the land’s fastest mammal run at its full speed, and well, it lived up to its tag alright. Even at a Shutter speed of 1/400, the cheetah couldn’t be captured perfectly on my camera (all i got was 2 pictures of it jumping in and out of my frame). Yes! That’s how fast it was. The best part was it was a friendly cheetah which has been properly trained by the zoo officials. The cheetah was all over its caretaker licking her and stuff (apparently that’s how cheetah’s show their affection).
The Zoo was built in an amazing manner, and had lots of Animal’s from all over the world. Though I don’t really prefer going to zoos, since it’s kinda cruel to cage up animals and put them up for a show and all, I somehow enjoyed the show a bit, thanks to some amazing company and the weather. I STILL DON’T TOTALLY SUPPORT CAGING ANIMALS AND STUFF.
I took a few photos and here they are:
