The Dubai Zoo is the oldest zoo in the Arabian Peninsula and is home to about 200 species of mammals, birds, reptiles and fish. It is located in a shaded area of Jumeirah and is surrounded by huge trees. Though not too large, this zoo is especially notable as it houses an impressive collection of endangered species like the Bengal and Siberian tigers, Arabian wolves and Scimitar-horned Oryx.
