Many visitors to our Tropical Reserve exclaim “Oh look, it looks like a dinosaur!” “. Spoken with a mixture of fascination and excitement before a row of sharp teeth, scaly skin and staring eyes…
Admittedly, crocodiles have hardly changed in appearance over the ages. But no, crocodiles are not the descendants of dinosaurs. Crocodiles and dinosaurs are cousins with a common ancestor… almost 250 million years ago!
Where do crocodiles come from? What makes them champions of evolution? Is it their aquatic lifestyle, providing both food and protection?
To answer these different questions, the Crocodile Farm is opening a new adventure zone in 2022: River Monsters! (“the river monsters”)
Dive into the River of Time, encountering three super-predators that haunted riverbanks, marshes and other wetlands in times past: Sarchosuchus imperator, the emperor of crocodiles; the Spinosaurus, a carnivorous dinosaur larger than the T-Rex and finally the Titanoboa, a giant snake that ruled the Earth for 10 million years!
Also discover a new fun course, and go around River Monsters by a set of aerial walkways stretched above our three monsters… something to please young and old alike!
