Crocodile bank has more than 2500 reptiles from all around the World. Crocodiles are kept in bunches in open pond, its very rare to see them moving around.

I'm not sure this is a place that I would visit. Look at all those crocodiles. There are so many of them. But I sure like to see your pictures.

Rose World said...

Wow! A great (and scary) tour around the park. We had a crocodile farm over here. Sure not as big as this one.

Looks like a fascinating place.

I can appreciate their grace, speed and power, but I am more comfortable with a healthy distance between me and snakes or crocodiles.

gosh, they're still giving me serious fear. Ultimate predators in my opinion.

Lux G. said...

I still fear them the most.

Hello, they do have a lot of crocodiles. This place reminds me of the gator parks in Florida. Great post. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

Amazing number of animals

Christine said...

Kind of scary!

Jo said...

I remember visiting an Alligator park in Florida some years ago, they had some crocodiles there too. Not something I would want to meet. Once played a golf course which had an alligator residing in one of it's ponds.

Linda said...

I have never seen one, but I would be nervous to go to this park. I really enjoyed your photos. Thank you so much for sharing.

Hi and what an interesting place to visit, mind it looks as if it get pretty hot. I have seen lots of crocodiles but never anything like that number all together. All the best, John

I don't think I'd like to get too close to those creatures!

Lynn said...

Yikes, that's a lot of crocodiles.

Margaret-whiteangel said...

Certainly a lot there...looks amazing really.

Julia said...

Wow, that an awful lot of crocodiles and reptiles. It must take huge amount of meat to feed them.
Like many, I would rather keep my distance to view them. My daughter visited the Komodo dragons in on Komodo Island in Indonesia. She was an intrepid and adventurous woman.

My boys would love to visit there.

Pam Jackson said...

Well that post was a bunch of croc! haha...sorry, I just had to go there. That is a really interesting place. Not sure I could handle seeing that many in one location. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by the blog.

Nancy Chan said...

No thank you, dear! There are so many of them. I don't mind looking at your photos, even that also gives me the creeps. I have visited a small scale crocodile farm before and that I didn't enjoy at all because I am scared of the crocodiles!

Ginny Hartzler said...

I have never seen so many crocs in one place! It does look so crowded for them, I imagine many fights break out. I hope the visitors are kept well away in a safe place. I have heard that Crocs are prehistoric survivors, very ancient.

Debbie said...

very nice - i don't think i have every seen so many in one place and out of the water!!!

My mother was from Jhansi in India my father met her during the war and my brother was born out there. I have never been to India and admit to being apprehensive about going but I love reading people's experiences who have.

Oh, this is so interesting. I really like the picture of the crocodile with its mouth wide open. But wouldn't want to be anywhere near it. : )

I hope you are enjoying these June days.
