During days bygone, you had the rich and the poor. Then you had millionaires, the rich and the poor. Then you had the tycoons, the super-rich, the rich and the poor. Now, well, it is beyond that too. Mega rich or super-duper rich or megastatistic rich and so on.
This new category collates the “rich kids of [a country in the Gulf]”. For eg, the Rich Kids of Saudi or the Rich Kids of Dubai. To be part of this elite group, your family must be very, very, very rich and you must be surrounded by fancy cars, gold-plated accessories (such as weapons) and exotic animals as pets.
A recent photograph of a Reddit user that went viral is one example, where 80 birds of prey were being flown by a passenger jet by a Saudi Prince. We have seen a few others where youngsters stand next to their Bentleys and gold-plated Ferraris petting a young tiger or cheetah cub.

Spotting a gold-plated luxury car on a day out at the mall is now as common as ordering for a side of fries with your McDs.
Airlines now comply with rules that allow carrying exotic birds. One regional airline allows 6 birds to be carried in Economy, with prices ranging from 90 pounds to 500 sterling pounds.
