The Crocodile Farm and Zoo offers daily shows featuring elephants and crocodiles. The elephants are versatile, intelligent creatures that have been trained to entertain the crowd. The visitors are amazed to find the vast, lumbering beats perform skilful acts such as rope walking, dancing and racing on skateboards. However, it is the crocodile show that happens to be the main attraction here. Watching young trainers place their head into the open jaws of a gigantic crocodile can be a scary experience though. Wrestling of men and crocodiles can be exciting, however.

The Crocodile Farm and Zoo has been developed courtesy the undivided interest and efforts of Utai Youngprapakorn, known as the Crocodile King, an established leader in the business of crocodile breeding. Opening its doors to the public for the first time in 1950, the farm is dedicated to protecting the crocodiles and also serves as wildlife education and research centre.
However, the preservation of indigenous species and endangered animals happens to be the main focus of the management here. The farm initially began functioning with a modest number of crocodiles. However, efforts in breeding them turned out to be highly successful with the number of these aquatic reptiles having reached more than 100,000 at present.

  • Carrying a good quality camera is a must for photographing the wildlife here.
  • The brave ones try crocodile meat at the local restaurant within the farm, but it is not recommended due to suspect hygiene.
