Located in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, the North Lan Crocodile Lake Zoo was established in 1950 by the Thai-Chinese Yang Hai Chuan. Covering 300 acres of land, it is an internationally renowned crocodile farm and the largest crocodile farm in the world, with the world’s largest crocodile located in the park. The crocodile was found in the Philippines in 2011 and was 19 feet long and weighed 1,114.27 kilograms.
Visitors to the zoo, which houses more than 100,000 crocodiles and a wide variety of wildlife, are treated to a thrilling and exciting crocodile show where crocodiles and staff perform together every day, with staff members putting their heads and arms into the crocodile’s bloody mouths in a thrilling display. There are seven shows on weekdays and eight shows on holidays, and each show is packed to the rafters. In addition to the fierce crocodiles, there are also elephants, lions, tigers, monkeys and other animals at the Beilan Crocodile Lake Zoo. The interesting elephant show mainly reflects the agility of elephants, and the wonderful rope walking, ice skating and dancing show attracts visitors to clap their hands. The zoo is open from 8:00 to 20:00 every day.
