Hear From Others
For the first time in my life, I am able to hear how a crocodile sounds like, how their eyes work and the fact about their eggs. All this info was rather overwhelming. Don’t get me wrong, am still scared shit of this vicious creature but my perception of it has changed slightly.
This is a worthwhile visiting place where you can see thousands of crocodiles in one time from the youngest to the oldest. As a travel blogger, at least I could tell others I have been to the largest crocodile farm in Peninsular Malaysia and seen the 155 years old crocodiles!LOL
