The Alipore Zoological Gardens

(also informally called the Alipore Zoo or Calcutta Zoo) is India's oldest formally stated zoological park (as opposed to royal and British menageries) and a big tourist attraction in Kolkata, West Bengal. It has been open as a zoo since 1876, and covers 18.81 ha (46.5 acres). It is probably best known as the home of the now expired Aldabra giant tortoiseAdwaita, which was reputed to have been over 250 years old when it died in 2006. It is also home to one of the few captive breedingprojects involving the Manipur brow-antlered deer.
