Indore zoo made winter-ready with new heating arrangements for animals!
Amid the intensifying winter wave in Indore, the city's Kamla Nehru Prani Sangrahalaya has arranged heating arrangements for in-house cold-blooded animals. The Indore zoo has made heating pads and warmers available for such animals, read reports. Notably, cold-blooded animals have exactly the same body temperature as their environment and thus, are unable to generate body heat during the cold season. Consequently, these measures will ensure comfort to these creatures and help them survive the winter spell.
Separate blankets & heating pads for reptiles
