Feed Godown-cum-Kitchen
This facility caters to the feed requirements of wild animals of the zoo in a very systematic manner. Different types of diets are prepared in the kitchen every day according
to the need-based prescriptions for the animals. The work of preparing of various diets for animals requires utmost care, vigilance and patience from the staff of the zoo.
Feed articles are procured through tender. However, green fodder is mostly produced internally. Due importance is given to the quality and quantity of the feed
article supplied to the zoo. Every feed
article supplied to the zoo is properly checked for its quality and quantity by the staff before it is taken to the stock.
Garden Section
The zoo has around 5 acres of land under gardens or lawns at different places inside the zoo. There are nearly 1000 potted plants also. A big lawn-cum-garden by the side
of the lake is a centre of great attraction for visitors. This facility has been developed to break the monotony of the visitors, make them feel fresh and near the nature and also
to encourage them to spend their leisure time in peace and tranquility.
