The Department of Zoology of the Faculty of Science was established at the University of Peradeniya in July 1961, the second of its kind after the Department of Zoology at the University of Colombo, then referred to as the University of Ceylon.  Department of Zoology was one of the five departments in the newly constituted Faculty of Science in Peradeniya, and was administered in the early years by its sister department at the University of Colombo. However, in 1963 the Department of Zoology came of its own with a staff of three headed by Prof. Hilary Crusz.
