Owner description: A breeding place for Philippine Crocodiles and home to some endangered animals in the Philippines. Tourist can pet and cuddle baby crocodiles there.

The park is actually a crocodile farm and while you get to see some big crocs it's not overly interesting.

The nature park is in need of work. It looks like it seen better days. I couldn't help feel sad looking at the eagles in their smallish cages. It's unclear whether there's any conservation going on.

While it was interesting enough, there wasn't really that much going on here. I think that the best part of this attraction was seeing where they raise baby crocodiles. The main thing I came out with, was learning that they can determine what sex the crocodile will end up being before it is hatched!

Aside from the well trained staffs of the center, nothing special.

They could have displayed more exquisitely the remains (bones and skin) of the largest crocodile - but it was only laid bare.

The place looks tidy and well maintained.

I lucked out and went to see the crocodiles the day they got fed that week, which was a Monday. It was somewhat amusing to see them writhe and fight over the large pieces of raw meat.

There is a Hatchling house where you get to see the baby crocs lazing around in their tubs.

There's a nature park just outside the grounds where they keep the crocodiles.

If you're not into crocodiles, there's an injured eagle, brids and a few bearcats for you to look at.

There are also souvenir shops lined towards the exit.

The thing that interested me the most was the skin of the largest crocodile found in the Philippines on display and the crocodile sisig for all those foodies to try out.

Entrance fee is PHP40. Granted it's nowhere near the best Crocodile Farm on the planet, but with a price like that and in a city where there's not much else to do, it's worth a visit.

This placed used to be called Crocodile Farm. We didn't book the city tour from agencies which normally includes this place because it is definitely cheaper to commute. To reach this place, take a jeepney in front of Jollibee in PP city that has a sign Crocodile Farm. Fare is only 20 pesos per person. It only took us 40 mins to get there. There is an entrance fee of 40 php per person and tour is every 30 minutes starting at 9 AM. When we were there, it was crowded because there was a field trip of a school. There is nothing much to do inside the facility. The tour guide does not give that much information as well. It's nicer to talk with the staff in the hatchery and they were able to give more informative knowledge on the life cycle of crocs. The outside cages hold the adult crocs. I do hope that they weren't kept on concrete and steel cages but rather on something that is closer to their natural habitat. Main highlights of the tour are the picture taking with a live juvenile croc and with "Ella" the loveable bear cat!
