Nandankanan welcomes 8 anacondas, 3 Nile crocodiles


Bhubaneswar: Nandankanan zoological park on Tuesday welcomed eight yellow anacondas to attract more tourists to the zoo in Bhubaneswar.

Besides, three Nile crocodiles have been brought to Nandankanan zoo.

The animals will be brought as part of the animal exchange programme, said sources.  

8 yellow Anacondas (4 male, 4 female) brought to Nandankanan Zoo in Bhubaneswar from Madras Crocodile Bank Trust.

According to zoo officials, their initial plan was to bring both yellow and green anacondas to Nandankanan. However, the trust did not have the adequate number of green anacondas.

Anacondas are one of the world’s largest snakes in the world.

The visitors are eagerly waiting to witness anacondas in Nandankanan zoo.
