Some of the 200 animal species unique to the islands can be seen in rusting cages at the small and rather sad Mini-Zoo. These include the Nicobar pigeon, the Andaman pig (the staple diet of some tribal groups) and the crab-eating macaque. Feeding time is 08:30 to 09:00, and there's a short film shown at 10:00 and 15:00.
