Exciting news awaits wildlife enthusiasts and tourists as Udaipur's Sajjangarh Biological Park gears up to unveil its latest attraction – the Reptile and Nocturnal House. Set to be the state's first of its kind, the house promises an immersive experience into the world of reptiles and nocturnal creatures.

Construction is well underway, with expectations high for opening after Lok Sabha Election to the public. The facility, located near the crocodile enclosure, boasts two special cages, each featuring ten partitions. These partitions will house various species of reptiles and nocturnal animals, allowing visitors to observe them through transparent glass.

A budget of Rs 1 Crore 85 Lakh has been allocated to ensure the success of this venture. The Nocturnal House will showcase a diverse range of night creatures, including Civets, Pangolins, Honey Badgers,Mega Bats, and more, offering a glimpse into the mysteries of the forest after dark.

Meanwhile, the Reptile House will feature ten species of snakes indigenous to Mewar and Rajasthan. From Cobras to Russell's vipers, visitors will have the opportunity to learn about and appreciate these fascinating creatures up close.

Additionally, a Rescue Center is being prepared within the Sajjangarh Wildlife Sanctuary to provide special care to rescued wildlife. With a total investment of Rs 4.72 crore, this center will cater to animals brought in from across the sanctuary, ensuring their well-being and rehabilitation. As construction progresses rapidly, anticipation builds for the grand opening of these new attractions, promising an unforgettable experience for visitors to the Sajjangarh Biological Park.

“In the Biological Park, reptiles and nocturnal creatures will be a new attraction for tourists. Work on both cages is progressing rapidly. It is expected that they will be ready in two to three months. Efforts will be made to inaugurate them soon after the Lok Sabha elections. The work on the Rescue Center is also progressing well. Lion safari work has also been initiated.” - Devendra Kumar Tiwari, Deputy Forest Conservator (Wildlife)
