I knew crocodiles are big but to see them up close! Lol. Entrance is 40. There's a guide to give you info about the crocs. Picture op with a 3year old croc but the prints are expensive (230) for a 5R I think. Better just use your phone. This place could use some renovation.

I never had a close distance with a croc before. Enjoyed holding a baby croc for picture taking. The wishing well full of crocs are scary but worth the try.

Also known as the crocodile farm. Here you will see large crocodiles in captivity most of them when captured in palawan rivers. Crocodile eggs and hatchlings are also one of the attractions. Other animals are also in the wildlife park like the palawan bear cat and philippine macau's and monkey's.

You should see and take selfies with crocodiles on your shoulders.. Do not worry, they can not bite you...Very nice place, especially you should see the big crocodile skeleton.

We got to see the largest crocodile in captivity. The guide will tell you the difference between an alligator and a crocodile. Kinda scary because they are HUGE! The center should have let us buy chicken and fed these crocs just like in Zoobic.

I'd been here once before and at that time, I just went with the tour group listening to our guide. This visit, I made sure to ask questions and got to know a lot more fun facts about their care and management of the animals.

This was part of the city tour excursion. When we arrived it was raining and it was very crowded. Basically this place is a crocodile farm with a small outside zoo for other animals. Because of time constraints we didn't walk around the outside " zoo " for very long. Our stay here mostly focused on the crocodiles. It was... More

Also includes the main attraction of the crocodile farm which is scary but very well presented and safe. Apparently they farm crocodiles for food and as the Philippine salt water crocodile is under threat as an endangered species it is protected in the wild. They are only used for breeding and nothing else, seems a nice life for some! The... More

We had a very interesting tour here. They are live crocodiles of all sizes here as well as other animals. It is a great place for both kids and adults. The entrance fee was reasonable as were many of the souveniers.
