It's not as big as a zoo, but there were enough interesting wild life to view and appreciate-there are bearcats, talking mynah birds, hornbills (toucans), and other denizens of the island rescued from a certain fate.

About an hour public transport to crocodile farm (former name). A government run place which was a mini zoo but had a couple of big crocs. It was all crocs with some other animals, not a big zoo. So at the end you can pose with crocs for additional fee but I was pleasantly surprise because I have not seen... More

My husband I regretted going there. It was awful to see the way the animals were incarcerated. Don't support this business. It looked like it sprung up as one of the supposed Palawan the last frontier tourist attractions. Give this a miss

If you haven't been to anything like it, then it is worth a try. There is a guided tour of the main facility every 30 minutes which covers a brief discussion about how the crocodiles are bred, etc. After the short tour is an option for you to continue exploring their mini-zoo unguided. There are a few caged animals in... More

Those poor crocs spend their whole life in a plastic container until they are used for handbag and meat production( or at least I guess so as the restaurant there serves croc meat) the oldest ones are still tiny at 3 years and then they have some really old ones. They also had a cat locked in a cage?! They... More

It's a crocodile farm, with some of the endangered species that you can only see in Palawan. I love the Maynah bird saying Pangit.
