Have you ever thought that crocodile is the scariest animal on earth? Have you seen it anywhere along the river bank or any other places? Have you ever imagined how fierce it looks when its hungry? It's undescribable because crocodile is the most terrifying animal I would have wanted to come across.
|Welcome to Miri Crocodile Farm|
|Identity Card required before entering the farm|
|Watch out! Do not try to feed the crocodile.|
How many species of crocodiles do you know? There are three types of crocodilians known as alligator, crocodile and ghavial. I can't identify or distinguish these three crocodilians but there are physical differences that we can notice. Just look at the crocs head. A Crocodile has a longer snout. An Alligator has a shorter and broader head than the crocodile. A Ghavial has the longest and the thinest snout amongst the the three.

Sheep and goats can be found here too. If you have not seen a deer before, this is just a right place for you to sneak peek on the animal.

Wow! It's been an educating short tour inside the mini zoo. There are also cute tiny animals to friend with such as the squirrel, palm civet, rabbit and birds.

The farm and mini is well maintained by workers here. Animals are fed according to their schedules. The scenery here is quite interesting too. You can also have a sit for a drink.
If you believe in making wishes, you can throw some coins into the "Wishing Well" at the entrance gate.
If you can't make a trip to the National Zoo in Peninsular Malaysia, I think you will be able to visit the Miri Crocodile Farm. It only takes approximately an hour to make a tour inside the mini zoo. Do spend some times with your family or friends to visit and learn about these exotic animals.
