The snakes of the Alipore Zoological Garden are housed in a special corner called” Reptile House”. Indian python, Indian cobra, common krait, banded krait , rat snake,checkered keelback water snake and common wolf snake are exhibited in the said reptile house of the zoo. The reptile house of the zoo would be suitably remodelled so as to house the snakes of the zoo more naturalistically.
The muggers or marsh crocodiles are exhibited in a naturalistic enclosure having water body and basking area while gharials are exhibited adjacent to the enclosure of the pool of the mugger. Both mugger and gharials of the zoo would be relocated in the hoolock island situated in front of the existing Reptile House of the zoo.
