The zoo has many unusual ideas. For example, the Village people's entertainment, where you can see the fighting bulls, where visitors are free to bet and cheer for his bull. There is a fighting cock. The birds are here not only to fight, but are treated carefully by the owners after the battle. Such competitions attract a great number of people, with women and men almost equally.

Modes of transportation around the zoo may be different: no tram, bus or walk. Zoo better in the first half of the day, otherwise you might not see many animals. In the heat they get tired and prefer to sleep - so neither to play nor to photograph any animal you have will not work.
