Sri Venkateshwara Zoo Park in Tirupati houses 19 lions, which are being taken care of by Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams (TTD). Special care is being taken by authorities, right from the lions' food supplies to treating them when they are ill. Moreover, a 35-acre land has been fenced and protected for the lions' safari and tourists are allowed to visit them. So much so that the life span of the lions, as compared to those in natural forests, increases by at least 10 years.
