Crocodile Farm Part 1 of 2



We went to this local crocodile farm recently and snap lot's photos there. I personally feel this farm is quite amazing.

It doesn't have fancy or great amenities but rather its more kind of "original".

The road to go inside is quite bumpy - no tarmac - all soils, mud, rock and stones....

It's about 1KM from the main road...

Nonetheless, some photos from the farm;


Some of their "mini collections":






And along the way as you walked, you will also passed by those chicken hatchery... I didn't bother to take any photos coz the smell is "lovely" - if you know what I mean....

I just walk pass it as fast as I can....

They also have these ostrich there, plenty of them, at least its not so stink in here;









The entrance fee is only a mere SGD 1.00 (about USD 0.81 cents / 65 yen) - that's damn cheap...

Between you and this monster is only those normal chain link fence - feels quite OK, but not so sturdy though ^_^ - just pray that those fences wont fall down...








They have about 200 crocodiles in various size and types within this big pond.... my personal estimation, it is roughly as big as 6 or 7 Olympic size swimming pool - if you could imagine that






And we are kind of lucky, it's around 4pm, it's their "dinner" time....
















I did mentioned chicken hatchery earlier - apparently, those chickens who were sick and dying and dead - will become the food of this crocs.... those who are healthy will be slaughtered for commercial purposes.... either way, those chicken are meant to die... LOL












I've been to a small crocodile zoo in Sabah many years ago, but nothing quite like this... that one have the "commercial feeling" on it while this one... feels like you went into some farms in a remote area - with mosquitoes and fly and stink smell here and there.... absolutely "original" - no doubt about it.

1 of these crocodiles body are as big or as wide as 80cm - almost like my big office desk...








Be careful - as these ants might bite you while enjoying the crocs scenery....
