“Not just crocodiles”

Davao Crocodile Park
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The Crocodile Park is actually a zoo housing many other animals. Make sure you visit the crocodile park during the feeding time. We arrived at the park before 4pm, just in time for the feeding frenzy of the small crocodiles (with pieces of chicken) and the feeding of the huge crocodile with one mid-sized pig cut into two servings. I believe the crocodiles are only fed three times a week.

There are a lot of activities you can do here aside from sampling their civet coffee. You can go on a crocodile feeding or simply go nature tripping with the animals in this park. It is like a mini zoo and a nature park combined. Part of the agenda when you are here is to take as many pictures as you want as souvenirs of your trip. And if you are up for it, you can always try their crocodile sausages.

Although it's called a crocodile park, you see several other animals there, like ostriches, Bengal tiger, parrots, binturong, Philippine brown deer etc., most of which are in distressingly small cages, barring the ostriches, which have a fairly large running area. It's tragic to see the three tigers confined to a tiny enclosure, though some of the staff were trying to invite visitors (for a price) to climb onto a ramp for a 'view from top' of the tiger enclosure, though there were very few takers.
The crocs themselves seem to fade into the background in view of all the other activities going on around the park. One of them is rather huge.
One thrilling feature is a couple of Filipino chaps doing tricks on a tight rope right above a tank full of dangerous, large crocs. Apart from 'standing on one leg' and dances performed on the tight rope, to the accompaniment of recorded disco music, the chaps drew several gasps from a shocked audience when they pretended to slip and fall into the tank. It gets bloody crowded around the show though, so get to the show early and get places right in front. Small pavilion like stepped seating is also around, but it's pretty much useless with the hundreds standing and crowding about in front. Behind this pavilion are several enclosures housing scores of crocodiles.
The best part of the croc park however is the tribal fire dance performed by professional dancers in costume. These are apparently traditional folk dances performed by the Tribu K Mindanawan tribals. The many dangerous stunts they perform with fully lighted kerosene torches and fire frames will leave you spell bound for several tense minutes! There are photo ops apelnty after the show as the dancers allow you to take pictures with them while they are still holding their burning torches. Only ignore the kerosene fumes and the smoke!
All restaurants in the park serve crocodile sisig, a stew like local filipino dish made with croc meat. Fairly tasty.
