Crocodile Farm 鳄鱼潭
Located 32 kilometers (circa 40 minutes away) from the Kota Kinabalu city, this crocodile farm which was opened back in 2004 is a sanctuary for some 5,000 crocodiles. Among the species of crocodiles kept in the farm are the Buaya Tembaga (Crocodylus Porosus)—which can live both in freshwater and saltwater, the Nile Crocodile, the Aqua Crocodile (bisexual crocodile), and the Gharial Crocodile.
The 11-acre large farm also houses a variety of other animals such as two Borneo Anacondas measuring 28 and 20 feet each, the adorable and friendly Binturong bearcats, ostriches, deer, as well as ponds of catfish and koi fish—which are always in anticipation for visitors to feed them. Should you be lucky, you will also get the chance to take a sneak peek at cute baby crocs in the nursery.
The crocodile farm is situated at Kg. Lok Batik, Jalan Sulaman Highway Tuaran and is open daily from 8.30a.m to 5.30p.m.
