Remarks 1.Old Crocodile ponds near the office is very congested and unhygienic. Gradient is very steep and difficult for the movement of senior citizens and children. Crocodiles in the old ponds should be shifted elsewhere or released in their habitat where there is no human habitation after getting CZA approval. 2.(i) Lion animal houses have to be remodeled. Animal care takers passage should be provide with chain-link mesh or iron grills, keeping 2m width of passage and single door to be provided with lock and key to prevent chances of animal escaping from the cubicles. It will provide double protection. (ii) Roof top of the Lion animal house should be replaced with concrete slab of iron grills beneath the top cover. 3.Proper records should be maintained in CZA prescribed format. 4.(i) Proper gradient should be maintained in the visitors’ path for the movement of wheel chair (New Crocodile park). (ii) In Lion safari roads made for the transportation of the visitors should be widened to facilitate the free and easy movement of vans. End points of the roads should be widened for smooth turning of the visitors’ vehicle to avoid any mishap. Weeds overgrown should be regularly cleaned for proper sighting of the animals.
