A tropical garden

The greenhouses at the Crocodile Farm are adapted to faithfully recreate the natural habitats of its occupants: crocodiles, tortoises, lizards and birds. For this reason, they house over 600 species of plants which are often rare and astonishing. Surrounded by such vegetation, visitors become aware of the rich biodiversity of these recreated environments.

Naturally, tropical plants cannot resist the cold very well and suffer when temperatures drop to below 15°C. Therefore, the conservatories are maintained at a temperate climate of around 25°C. The temperature is closely monitored to ensure the optimal development conditions for plants and fruit trees.

While walking around the conservatories, some remarkable flora can be discovered such as Aristolochia, Bougainvillea, ylang-ylang and sandpaper vine.
