The Giza Zoo is a popular tourist attraction, but it has been criticized for being substandard

At the Giza Zoo in Egypt, a happy little girl threw a handful of fish to a hungry sea seal after she entered the zoo with her father.

Nearby, visitors could also feed a camel sweet potatoes, zebras cane barley, and even zookeepers could poke a lion in its cage to take pictures of it.

The historical zoo was the first of its kind in the region and was once a symbol of Egypt’s modernity.

However, the methods used in it date back to the fifties of the last century, according to experts, and its buildings are in dire need of repair and development.
