Singapore Crocodile Farm

Today was a great day =) Finally, my One Piece comic is out! And finished my draft of eco assigment at 4pm. Looks early so I rushed to take the bus to Singapore Crocodile Farm, just 15mins bus trip away from my house.

I first saw this at Channel 5's (Heartland Getaways), although I had knew this place was here all along since young, just that din know it is open to public. It is a walkable distance from Kovan MRT.


The Singapore Croc Farm




When I entered, I saw the lady boss shouting to her son at the opposite house. Apparently her big bungalow was just opposite the farm. And it was huge.

Most of the crocs were sleeping or lazing around at that time. Some random photos of the saltwater crocodile, Crocodylus porosus.

This newspaper cutting on the wall caught my eye. It said that by buying croc products, we encourage such more croc farms to be set up to breed them and less will be poached in the wild. I guess many people will have some strong opinions regarding that although there is truth in it.

One thing which I like about this place is that it was decorated with many croc artwork, probably drawn and painted by children.

There was also this souvenir shop selling crocodile skin bags, croc tooth necklances and many other related products. The lady boss was there and I asked her some questions:

How many species of crocs you have? Three.
How many crocodiles you have? About a hundred. Many of them are located at the back which is not open to the public.
Does all your crocodile skin come from your crocodiles here? Some, not all.

The backyard where they kept the remaining crocs.

Looks like the Tan Moh Hong Reptile Skin Trading company has branched out in other areas...
