SANDAKAN TRIP (DAY 2)

Date: 22 March 2005


DAY 2
Second day will be on the crocodile farm. It has been expanded tremendously in term of scale, variety of species and other animals since my last visit. The farm is also putting in 2 crocodile shows and couple of feeding time a day. We are being entertained with the crocodile show which is so called "HEART ATTACK" to me. Aside, it also have several of reptilian, birds and monkey there for us to view aside crocodile.


We took some pictures with the DEAD crocodiles.. haha.. where we can post with him at anytime not to scare we are being eaten up.




The Sandakan Crocodile Farm is Malaysia's largest with over 3000 of the reptiles. The original stock came from wild crocodiles found along the Kinabatangan River. The animals are farmed for their skins to be turned into shoes and bags.

Besides offering visitors an up-close look at Sabah's biggest reptiles, the farm hosts several other attractions as well, including crocodile and snake shows. It also features a mini zoo with a 100kg Amazonian fish, and a children's park.

The drive from Sandakan to the farm takes about half an hour.
