The Living Desert


Desert tortoises, big-eared fennec foxes, meerkats, Arabian oryxes, and cinereous vultures are just a few of the 134 species of desert-dwellers you'll find at this 1,200-acre zoological park and botanical garden. At the state-of-the-art Tennity Wildlife Hospital, you can watch live and videotaped surgeries while veterinarians provide running narrative.
