Tuaran Crocodile Park

At last, I managed to find some time to visit another place in Sabah

Which is the Tuaran Crocodile Park or "Taman Buaya".  Went there with a group of friends.

As you can see the Admission for Malaysian is RM15.00, for Non-Malaysian its extra RM5.(roughly about USD4.00)

This is the entrance landscape. And this is the entrance greeting

This is a preserved croc.

This crocodile was killed by some villagers coz it attacked one of the villagers. Luckily it was preserved for others to know about its story.

And this one also. (I'd be dead if its alive). To my surprise the park also displays some exotic animals for visitors to see.

and a real phyton (of course in a cage)

two pools of fishes..this one is kinda disgusting..where u can buy the food for RM1 and feed them. They're Starving!

A kind of Bear..if I'm not mistaken.

And a Large preserved fish.


At 11.00am and 3.00pm Daily, The park will organize a crocodile show.

This is a preparation before beginning the show. The "stuntmen" were splashing some water on the hot floor before beginning the show.The announcer said this is to make the crocodile "comfortable" of which I have a doubt about it.

Here, they are persuading the crocodile to "cooperate" with the show. They use a long bamboo stick to guide the croc.

This is the How-to-tie-a-Croc's-mouth demonstration done by a young lady.

And this is the stunt where the guy are persuading the crocs so that it wont bite him when he kiss it.

There you are - an essentially nonsense crocodile kiss. A friend bet me RM5 if the guy would put his head inside the mouth. Which of course was not performed.

Besides this there are also several shows such as "dancing with the croc" which lasted barely 3 seconds, and "brushing the croc's teeth" demo.

Quite a nonsense but still a Daring show. Mind you, I still can't imagine being inside the large cage with several hungry crocs!

To be continued...
