Bhubaneswar, May 31 (LocalWire): A day after a lone orangutan died at the Nandankanan Zoological Park here, a male Nilgiri langur succumbed to his old age on Friday. He was 17 years old.
He was placed in a quarantine ward before he breathed his last. The primate was suffering from diarrhea and fever for the last couple of days, zoo authorities said.
Nilgiri Langurs were brought to Nandankanan Zoo as part of an animal exchange program with Arignar Anna Zoological Park in Chennai in 2017.
