Blankets, heaters, halogen bulbs  keep cold away from zoo animals 

The cold weather has led the zoo authorities to make efforts to maintain adequate warmness in their enclosures so that the animals are not adversely affected by the drop in temperature. 

The zoo has more than 1,350 wild animals of 175 species. Heaters have been installed in the snake house to provide heat to snakes. There are also larger bulbs and halogens to keep the temperature warm. Warm clothes and blankets have been put in the cages of some animals for them to sleep on and enclosures are being covered.  Dry grass has been spread for deer and other animals. Wooden planks have also been laid in the enclosures of tigers and lions so that the animals do not come in direct contact with the cold floor. Trees are also being cut in the tiger enclosure so that they can relax in the sun.

According to zoo in-charge Uttam Yadav, cold does not affect big animals as much as it affects small animals like snakes, cats or pocket monkeys. Reptiles are more affected by cold, hence more caution has to be taken for them.
