It is one of those Zoological Park which have been built on modern Zoo building principles. The animals inhabited in the Zoological Park have been put in open and moated enclosures. The moated enclosures give the animal ample space for movement and help in expressing their biological and physiological expressions. The enclosures are screened by terrain in such a way that one enclosure is not visible from the other. Thus the animals inhabiting the enclosures do not feel undue psychological pressure of the animals of adjoining enclosures.
