With all kind of animals from herbivourous to lesser carnivorous to carnieverous species, the zoo is one of the best attraction in Darjelling. all animals are well fed and are active. The zoo premises are well maintained. Some of the popular attraction are the tiger, leapord, bear, wolf, different species of deer and beautiful birds
