Default Hyderabad Zoo : A Photoblog

I had been thinking of visiting the Hyderabad Zoo for a long time but, it never was on my priority list. But, with my sister visiting from US with my two lovely nieces then i thought this is a great opportunity to check out the animals and also spend some fun-time with my nieces.

We visited the zoo during last week of Aug'09 and despite having a slight to medium drizzle through the day, we had great fun.

Name of the Place : Nehru Zoological Park
Entry/Person : Rs.20 ( Rs.10 for kids)
Entry/Car : Rs.500 ( inclusive of tickets for 5 adults). To our luck this price was increased from Rs.250 to Rs.500 only about a week ago.

Camera: Rs.20

Well, here is a teaser picture

My younger niece and someone whom i loving want to compare to her with ( no, no she is terribly sweet but her actions force me to...LOL...just kidding !!!)

Thanks for the warning guys. I'll make sure she doesnt see any of these posts

Let me start right away with a bunch of pictures of the White Tiger ( there are 2 of them) and i haven't seen a more restless animal. They were continously walking around and wading in and out of water and came pretty close to the boundary wall.

It was a sight to behold seeing those magnificient animals upclose

Our dear pandeyji uses the Nikon Model which was released prior to the Superior D60, the D40x.

Restless White Tiger. Check.

Thank you Manish. As Pulsar mentioned, it is a humble Nikon D40x which happens to be the foundation of D60 ( which indeed has a few extra features that can be utilized by the likes of Atul kasbekar. I can visualize Pulsar running to D60 guide book to identify those extra features. So no complaints

Kids were terribly excited to spot a Giraffee. It was brought to the Hyderabad Zoo quite recently and is one of the main attractions.

Giraffe is the latest attraction at Hyderabad Zoo...nearly after 25 years.
It was traded for 2 Macaus and 2 Asiatic Lions.

When we were at the Primates areas which was separated with water in between and saw so many tortoises ( atleast more than 50 of them) and when we bent down to see them, they practically swam below us and looking up expecting us to throw down some food.

Maybe the zoo folks dont feed them properly
