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.

Really saw all sizes of crocodiles. Some were looking like they were dead with mouth open. It was wierd sight ! Looked like statues.
But were told that this is their tactic of catching prey .

This was quite a nice little place that is worth a visit just to see the many different types of crocodiles they have to see. The staff are very passionate about their crocodiles and working on programs to help the endangered species survive in the wild.

I have read lots of review about this place , everyone is complaining this place is poorly maintained. I would like to inform readers before commenting such you should read about Crocodiles. This place is made like natural inhabitant of crocodiles. If you read the details written across the park you will come to know crocodiles do not live in clean & clear water. People cannot expect crocodiles in swimming pool like environment. Take your time read the notices you will definitely enjoy. My bad luck that the snake show was closed on that day. You must see that also.
