Zoo Area

The mountain area surrounding our prison has a tranquil environment and pleasant landscape. When people from all fields come to visit our prison to understand administrative matters and facilities, they can also see the environment in which each team works. The Zoo Park is an environment area for animal husbandry and breeding. We welcome people from all fields to come to take a look at the animal world

The colour of the fur of their back is a mixture of black and brown; that of their belly and of internal part is camel; that of the end of their ears, their throat, and the upper half of their tails is darker; that of their back of the neck is grey yellow; that of the lower half of their tails is cream. Their rear legs are long and strong. They are herbivorous animals.

1. These Mingde chicken’s size is larger than that of the native chicken. Their feathers are mainly black. Some part of feather is red colour which is much darker than that of the native chicken. Their shanks are most of time black and have some yellow, white or green elements.
2. This type of chicken is an improved variety or species (created by cross-breeding). So fodder efficiency and the egg-producing rate are excellent. But it takes longer for them to be mature. Their meat is not as good as that of local chickens. From their motley feathers, yellow shanks and short and small cockscombs, customers can easily distinguish Mingde chicken from local chicken. They are called as ‘simulated native chicken.’

2. Ring-necked pheasants are grassland dwellers. They often rest in lands of thatches, sugarcanes or potatoes. The feet are strong and good for fast walking. Their flying is energetic, but they cannot fly very far. When encountering a dangerous situation, they will immediately fly upwards at the spot and then escape. In the breeding period during the spring, male pheasants make clear sounds to sending signals when the dawn breaks.
