Mysore Zoo is one of the oldest in India and the animals are well kept in a clean environment. I was happy to see the area neat and devoid of stenches and garbage as in Bannerghatta National Park, Bangalore. Security officers keep a strict vigil on visitors' activities to make sure that the animals are not harmed.
Watching the animals move about freely in their space without being bothered was nice. Few pictures here.
That special attention a tiger gets; no one other animal commands; not even the King of the Jungle. There were 6-7 cats; most of them 2-3 year old but massive enough to handle a village. Agastya; adopted by Dhoni was the attraction. It seems they released only one tiger at a time to loiter outside while others remained inside.
It was standing on the opposite side; couldnt get a close up shot
The birds and the Rhino are friends for life
Pack of Hyenas.
So tall and so gentle.
This one probably escaped from the zoo.
