Good collection, Clean, cheap and HUGE. This is surely is one of the better Zoo in India. Cannot compare it to Zoos outside India, but surely its not a time waste. However few things that needs to improve is more Food areas, better quality of food, better Toilets and better parking facility. We went on 26th Jan, and found a lot of people there, however since the ZOO is huge you dont feel its crowded. For people who cannot or do not want to explore the Zoo on foot, can take a battery operated car drive around Zoo. Its Rs 30 per person and the car takes you around Zoo stopping at few important locations. Its a 45 min ride, but you see most of things worth seeing. I was with my 9 month old daughter, so I found it worth it. We also took a Lion Safari, which also cost Rs 30 per person. However since I have been to South Africa and have explored the game reserves there, I didnt find Lion safari worth it. But all said and done its worth 3-4 hrs, if you have nothing to do and just want to explore new place in Chennai. Avoid during summers, although the tree cover is quite nice.
