“Animals in poor condition”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

As well as crocodiles they have some other local and exotic species. The condition of the animal enclosures is disgusting and the condition of some of the animals questionable. We saw a turtle that was either dead or dying with its entrails hanging out. When feeding the crocodiles they tease them which frankly is not nice to watch. A lot of the water the crocs were in was covered in green slime. We saw one lot of visitors who wanting to get close up photo of a monkey was feeding it ice cream whilst staff seemingly turned a blind eye. Better to take your chances to see crocodiles in the wild on a river cruise.

“An average zoo”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

a good place to watch crocodiles and animals.But i think it is a little bit scary and bilious especially the photo of dead human bodies torn by the crocodile.I also don't understand why they put a goose in a small cage,i don't think the goose is good to watch.Unfortunately,last time i saw an dead owl in front of me(in the cage).I think the best thing to watch in the Jong's crocodile farm is crocodiles feeding at 11am.

“Don't go !!!”
Reviewed December 25, 2013 via mobile

We went right after visiting the Semenggoh Nature Reserve, which was a great experience. This "farm" is not. Paid 16 RM entrance fee.
This is actually a zoo, where the animals' cages are way too small and dirty. Visitors obviously throw stuff in there and no one cleans it. They also seem not to feed the animals properly. We even saw one dead peacock. Very depressing. Did not stay for the feeding of the crocodiles, which they call "Crocodile Jumping Show" on site. Saw pictures, too many crocodiles in the pond.

“Crocs everywhere”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Good place to educate kids. They love so much the jumping crocodile show. Just be there during the show. There are alot of crocodile specieses, wierd looking. They were very lazy, moves only when they want to move. Huge place to walk around. Remember to bring bottled water and mosquito wipes. One thing they don't have ther is Jong Crocodile Farm FRIDGE MAGNET. Quite disappointed for not being able to bring them back to KL (fridge magnet).
