Plants from the Botanical Garden in the Zoological Garden's turtle pond
A turtle pond has been built in the eastern part of the Zoological Garden. After the work was completed, a variety of water and lakeshore plants from the water plant section in the Botanical Garden were planted along the pond banks.
Among the planted plants: lesser bulrush (Typha domingensis), cow pea (Vigna luteola), lakeshore bulrush (Scirpus lacustris), and white and blue water lilies (Nymphaea alba, Nymphaea nouchali). All the plants are acclimatizing in their new home and starting to flourish.
