Just to have a close up on these creatures who has a trademark of being man eaters but unless provoked, they can be quite useless!! The farm also cares for fishes, peacocks and deer’s.

im an animal person so i love to visit crocodile farms. the place is properly maintained. they no longer perform crocodile shows as a person was injured by crocodile early this year. ever since, the place has been quiet, but still worth a visit.

The animals there are kept in really bad conditions, all the cages at too small for them and they are begging for food every time they hear visitors nearby! Just don't go..

There are a lot of crocodiles to see from small to large. The place is a bit dirty and smelly. Some of the animals are crippled and in a sad state.

Nothing much to expect as it is a crocodile farm like other places. The place looks old and a bit dirty.

We needed to spend couple of hours before a flight and chose this farm, which is situated 5 km far from Sabdakan airport. Most of reviews were negative, but we were very surprised. Around 150 crocodiles of all sizes, giant fish, otters, birds and much...More
