Thiruvananthpuram Zoo

The Thiruvananthapuram Zoo (also known asTrivandrum Zoo) is located in the city ofThiruvananthapuram, the capital of KeralaIndia. It occupies 55 acres (22 ha) of woodland, lakes, and lawns.

Thiruvananthapuram Zoo is one of the oldest of its kind in India. Swathi Thirunal Rama Varma, who ruled Travancore between 1830 and 1847, established a menagerie where royal tigers, panthers, cheetahs, deer, boar, and other wild animals were kept. His brother Uthram Thirunaland British Resident William Cullen formally establish the Zoo in 1857 as an annex to theNapier Museum. The zoo was originally built with the typical iron-barred cages prevalent at the time, and was designed for recreational purposes, but with increased loss of forest and wildlife due to human development, the goal of the Zoo has changed from recreation to conservation.[citation needed]

A modernization project started in 1995 aims to gradually replace the old enclosures with spacious naturalistic enclosures. The state government of Kerala is undertaking this renovation with financial and technical help from the Central Zoo Authority.[2]


The Thiruvananthapuram Zoo is home to 82 species from around the world. Indigenous species at the zoo include lion-tailed macaque,Nilgiri langurIndian rhinocerosAsiatic lion,royal Bengal tiger, and leopard,[2] as well a nineAsian elephants (as of March 31, 2009).[4]Animals from Africa include giraffeshippos,zebras, and Cape buffalos.[2]

The zoo also includes a snake farm which exhibits both poisonous and non-poisonous snakes.[5]
