By Indian zoo standards, the Calcutta zoo does not fare badly. It remains a dusty place filled with sad looking animals. Avoid going there during the Christmas season as the crowds are huge.

The place is good enough for roaming around with family & kids. I felt there is a lack of animals. They need to improve the variety.

Once largest zoo in Asia, still oldest in India. Vast range of mammals, avians, reptiles Indian as well as global, well fed and cared for. Positive points are-- state government takes keen interest and local people take great interest and pride in it.
