Lopburi Zoo

Overview

5.4

Lopburi Zoo is a small zoo in the town by the same name. It is possibly funded by the government, and, as such, the cages are less than adequate. Originally, there were reports of five tigers living here with a family of dogs as their companions. However, by our visit, this turned out to be long past and there were now only two tigers kept in two separate cages.
