My trip to the zoo( Part-1)

Only zoo of Nepal The Central Zoo was established by late Rana Prime Minister Juddha Shumser in 1932 as a private Zoo.After the fall of Rana regime, it came under the Government of Nepal in 1950 but it was opened for the general public only in 1956.
The central zoo is located at Jawalakhel covering an area of six hectares . It includes a reasonable collection of Nepali wildlife such as rhinos, tigers, leopards, monkeys, birds, chimpanzees, etc.It has a collection of some 800 animals and 119 species. The central zoo exhibits 15 out of 38 endangered animal species of Nepal. But this data varies from time to time .

As the animals were kept within bars and wire fences,it was a bit difficult to capture them by my n95 mobile but I somehow i managed to get few pictures.I hope they will entertain you .
