Good place !!

It's a good place for a short day trip. It has been improved a lot and houses a lot of animals these days. A great place for a day out with family and friends.

Great Zoo

The zoo and is located right in the heart of Thiruvananthapuram. It is very clean and well maintained. A perfect place for a day out or a picnic with kids and family. The zoo has a nominal entry fee. Wide range of animals and birds can be spotted here. Do keep ample time for the park and museum, which is in the same premises.

Animals, Birds and everything is maintained

Great experience in this zoo. Try to reach during morning because it is really a very big zoo and there are a lot of animals to see. The kids would surely love it and you would too. There are some rare species of birds there which are really huge (one of them taller than your kids maybe :p ) Do visit there and remember that NO POLYTHENES are allowed even if it's packed like a biscuit packet, you should take (if any) eatable in paper bags.

Really it is a great zoo, staff maintained the entire garden looking after different type of animals birds, snakes. We saw a long black snake that was kept in the cage, we asked the staff that what food will they give, they said snakes and rates are food, later we saw swan, tigers, over all it was thrilling.

More than a zoo, a well maintained jungle in the heart of the city

The Zoo is home to several species from around the world like lion-tailed macaque, Nilgiri langur, Indian rhinoceros, Asiatic lion, royal Bengal tiger, White Tiger and leopard, Asian elephants, Africa giraffes, hippos, zebras, and Cape buffalos. Apart from these, a snake farm with poisonous and non-poisonous snakes is included as the part of the zoo. Few months back an anaconda was gifted by Sri Lanka and many people are coming to see the giant snake. Other reptiles like Mugger Crocodile, Monitor Lizard, Indian Cobra, King Cobra, different varieties of vipers, Rat snakes, Green Tree snakes, Flapshell Turtle, Black Turtle, river turtle, tortoise, etc are also included. Ostrich, Indian Peafowl, Scarlet macaw, Green winged macaw, cranes, Pelicans, different types of storks, Vultures, Kites, Emu etc can also be seen in the zoo.I have visited the zoo recently also to see the anaconda and since I know few of the staff working there, they told me that managing the visitors are more difficult than managing the animals. The long walk through the landscaped zoo, the sight of various animals, reptiles birds etc are very interesting but few of them are dangerous and if you are visiting the zoo please obey the rules and the instructions displayed. Also, take care of your young children.
