Crocodile Rocks

Crocodile Rocks is home for our African dwarf Crocodile.

Following a £25,000 investment, this display was custom built to house juvenile crocodiles.

Crocodile Rocks measures approximately 10 square metres and the enclosure has been designed half land, half water, featuring a 2000 litre pool, mini waterfall, landscape rockery, heated basking areas and a bubble viewing window allowing visitors to get jaw-droppingly close to the reptiles in their jungle habitat.

Visitors can currently see our male African dwarf crocodile on display. In the wild, African dwarf crocodiles are mainly found in West and West Central Africa, inhabiting slow moving water in swamplands, ponds and forest marshes.
