Amazing,and very informative. I have never seen crocs this big,and certainly never been this close to one. Be prepared to get wet feet when they jump, they are huge.

This will keep your kids occupied and very happy, my daughter who is only 4 loved it. It features live Crocodile handling, only baby crocs of course, it also has a very rare Melanesian Artefacts which I found very interesting, you can also experience the crocodile and turtle feeding which the kids will love too
