Sprawling 10 acres for visitors, the Langkawi Crocodile Farm is specially designed and landscaped with beautiful plantation and greenery, making it looks like a recreation park. Different species of crocodiles are being kept in specific ponds, where visitors can have a thorough look at the crocodiles while walking around.
Nearly 1,000 crocodiles are being showcased in different ponds.
You will get to see crocodiles of different ages and sizes. Most of the crocodiles are inactive, with many of them are lying around, soaking in the small pond or even sleeping with their mouths wide open.
The Bridge Pond is the largest section with lots of huge and active crocodiles. A bridge is built across the huge pond where visitors can get a closer look at the crocodiles from the top. Standing on the wooden bridge, you will feel somewhat scary and exciting as those gigantic and sharp-teethed creatures stare at you.
Sometimes, you might even see them fighting with each other. Thus, for your own safety, it is advisable not to lean closely against the fence and always take cautious steps while walking on the bridge because the crocodiles are merely 5 feet underneath the wooden bridge.
The major attractions in Langkawi Crocodile Farm are the Crocodile Feeding Show, Crocodile Jumping Show and Crocodile Show.
The first feeding show at the Bridge Pond is held at 11.45 am. The trained personnel of the crocodile farm will go into the pond with a bucket of fishes on his hand. Blowing his whistle, all the huge crocodiles will move to his direction, waiting to be fed. This will be a very exciting show as the farm personnel will be feeding the crocodiles at close range.
The Crocodile Show will feature an exciting wrestling show between a man and the crocodile. You will be stunned by all the dangerous stunts done by the man. This wrestling show will be held at the Show Pond A, at 11:15 am and 2.45 pm.
Thus, if you do not wish to miss all the exciting show, plan your time wisely while visiting the Langkawi Crocodile Farm.
