Owner description: Originally started with a more serious conservation point of view, Crocodile Bank is now the weekend spot for a fascinating day of herpetology. 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.

This is a place where you'd see more crocodiles than anywhere put together all your visits to zoos. Very interesting for the kids but have to be careful with kids as the enclosures are not that strong.

Should plan to reach early so that you could visit snakes as well. The snakes visiting would be a very interesting experience as you could witness the venom removing process on the snakes.

The place looks a little dirty and would stink a lot, however that is more because of the way water has to be for the crocodiles.

This is Place that you Must see - unless you are zoologist and have experience of animals.
It's full of different reptiles where some of them are really impressive. Others - not.
I can't imagine spending more than 30 mins there. Unless you count to see all of them moving - then you need full day.
