Hi friends being a kolkata origin resident I had visited alipore zoo more than a dozen of times since my childhood and in very recent time also.At the previous time the zoo had a significance, at earlier time during the 90's or the initial of 2000's the zoo had a much variety of it's animal and birds though.

In recent times the zoo had no importance left, the quantity of the reserved animals, birds and other creatures had enormously fallen down.though the zoo is much big and kolkata's one of the renowned and old zoo is it.This zoo has it's fame throughout the india and upto Asia.

Still now the zoo is vacant, there is almost nothing left to see. To say, every time of the year the zoo remains mainly vacant and unoccupied by the visitors, only the winter time it draws some crowd,

Mostly because of the kids predominantly that time the zoo gets some center of attraction, else other time of the year people almost don't go there.and adult people why would go there because is there is almost nothing to see new, the zoo either don't bring any new and foreign animals, it's going on it's same and old way. To say about the animals there is few tigers, few numbers of ziraffes, only one white tiger, 2-3 royal bengal big tiger, 4-5 lions or lioness, only 5 leopards, no elephant there, only 3 zebras, few collection of peacock, 2-3 crocodile, 2-3 hippopotamus, a good amount of deer is available with golden deer too, a few of golden duck, and a good few collection of various snakes which of those mainly either don't come out from it's den or some are already old and look unimpressive.

Previously the zoo had a 500 years old turtle which was very famous among the kolkatans and many of the people used to go for the attraction of that old turtle but, now only a small turtle can be found there.

apart from all those just after the entry you can see a big house or caze of the birds which is very fascinating and the sounds of those birds during the winter's morning time especially makes you feel very charming and beautiful.

Apart from these all the zoo has zero, as I have already mentioned that this had been an old and very ancient zoo of this country so the capacity of the the zoo is naturally very big, you would love to spend time visiting the whole zoo, only if you have enough of work free and worthless time.

I would like to add the zoo management can bring ome foreign and new collection of animals and can reform or renovate the zoo newly.

The zoo really needs to be reformed newly and needs to be more decorated, being an old, ancient and so famous zoological garden of this country, the zoo really loosing it's significance.

Thank you
