The year was 1966 when oil was first discovered in Dubai. Before the discovery of oil, Dubai wasn’t as luxurious as it is now. It was a humble desert port town in the UAE where pearls and spices were traded. Today, Dubai is one of the richest countries on Earth. How rich? Well... you'll have to see for yourself!
As we said, nowadays it is rare to see Dubai's residents flaunting their exotic animals in public due to the risk of copping a large fine, however, until recently seeing a cheetah ride shotgun in the Emirati city was an everyday sight.
