For the kids, it’s a special treat to see large crocs spend the day languorously by the water. The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology also allows adults to volunteer and gain hands-on experience in the field. « less

Guys if u like nature better visit, while at the counter ask for a feed token, show the token to the caretakers inside and the will feed the crocs in front of you... Totally worth the trip..

The crocodile bank near chennai is an excellent park, espicially for young kids, who will just love to see so many crocodiles, gharials and snakes. You can also watch in the feeding sessions and see how they feed the crocks. A small souvinier shops sells good stufff, but a bit expensive though . a must vist if in chennai.

Dull, there should be volunteers to make this place more exciting. Did not enjoy at all. Freaky boring, half dead crocs. The management should immediately hire a Croc Show guy from Pattaya,Thailand to make this place more exciting.
