The two-floor zoo is designed to create a night-like environment in the day time and vice versa.
“Total investment on this zoo was Rs. 17 crore and we get around Rs. 3.6 crore annual return a year,” said RK Sahu, director.
It was built in 2017, housing nocturnal animals such as Hedgehog, Jungle cat, and Striped Hyena, who are active in dark.
It has got a geothermal system for aeration, introduced first time in India for animals as well as visitors.
It is also provided with a special lighting system to give it a night-like look, said Sahu.
The whole property is designed in a way to give it a jungle-like texture also.
