Tiger at ChattBir Zoo

To compensate for a school trip to Jaipur which Manu couldn't attend, we took him to see a few places including the ChattBir zoo. I heard it was a very nice place and expected it to be more than just a zoo but was disappointed. The lion safari was lame, with just one femal lion sitting outside her cage. A trip in a bus was not required. The lions could have been kept like Tigers and people could just walk up there.

Everytime I think of a zoo, I can't help but think about the following conversation between Calvin and Hobbes

Calvin - Mom wants to know of we would like to go the zoo.

Hobbes - Sure, can we visit a prison afterwards?
