No winter worries at Delhi Zoo

The reptile section will be closed to public as it's time for hibernation. "It has not become cold yet, so the reptiles haven't just yet gone into hibernation," Khan said.

The zoo doctor and veterinary officers will continue to be available for animals round-the-clock.

"Age contributes a lot to the health of an animal. If we feel that a particular animal or bird is not well, we take it off the display area. The creature also automatically goes inside to rest," Khan said.

In case an animal is unwell, guards keep a watch over it during the day and night. In case, the animal's condition gets worse, it is transferred to the zoo hospital, he said.
