Remarks 1.No nature immersing exhibit has been constructed as it is very old zoo. Effort should be made in this respect. 2.Assamese Monkey, leopard, hyena & Common Langur are housed in small enclosures, they should be given proper sized enclosures.The proposed leopard enclosure should be completed within 1 year & animals shifted there. 3.The leopard & tiger enclosures should have proper keepers’ gallery and the attached kraals to each night house should not have hinge gates for safety. 4.There are chain-link mesh barriers in many cages besides the main barrier to prevent vandalism. This obstructs the vision. There should be alternate means to prevent such vandalism. The additional chain-link screening inside Zebra enclosure should be removed so that more space shall be available. 5.There are no regular foot baths in most night houses, they should be provided within a month. 6.The Asiatic lion & hyena should be paired. All animals of endangered species should be marked.
