Zoo Life in India
In the movie "Life of Pi," the main character's family ran a zoo in Pondicherry, India, housing many animals, including Richard Parker, the other tiger . If you were inspired by the movie to see a real Indian zoo (vs. taking a ride on a Japanese freighter), I recommend visiting the lush Kolkata zoo. There are rhinos, chimps, and many Bengali tigers.
