Now, it is home to different animal species, including lions, zebras, hyenasaccoons, monkeys, snakes, iguanas, and cheetahs. The private zoo becomes the heaven of these animals as it's protected by 6 armed security guards who keep the poachers away.

The kind-hearted and dedicated man posts educational videos about wildlife to help people understand their situations. Here is his Youtube channel!
