Well maintained…

This is a very well maintained crocodile bank which also houses several varieties of turtles and snakes. The enclosures depict fun facts about the creatures residing in them and some of them are also adopted by different people. The show on how they take out poison from snakes is a good learning experience.

Exciting…

It was an exciting experience to see crocodiles in dozens everywhere in this place.
Nice enclosures have been made for the visitors to watch the reptiles move around in water , on the ground as well as resting on the sand enjoying a sun bath.
Interesting facts are seen in many of the boards kept in different places.
They have a place to see venom extraction from cobras.
Apt for every age group.

A must visit for reptile lovers
Feb 2021
I had an awesome experience at the Crocodile Bank. They have such a huge colleciton of crocodiles and have maintained so well. I was able to witness crocodile feeding session too. It is worth a watch. There was a short demonstration of a baby anaconda along with some important detailed information. Overall that's the only place where I have seen such a large variety of crocodiles.

Nicely maintained enclosures. In case you are interested in these reptiles this is a really nice place. Barely 50kms from Chennai so if you are going to pondicherry or mahabalipuram do drop in here.

A must watch especially if you have kids
Feb 2021
It is a very well maintained enclosure. It is amazing to see so many different types of Crocodiles and a must-see are the Giant Turtles. The only thing one must be prepared for is dealing with the summer heat, else it is a very pleasant experience. You can stand for hours and watch these crocodiles oblivious to the audience.

Poor Service
Dec 2020
Initially it was quiet place where you don’t see much people compare to crocodile but now the things has been changed a lot during the Covid the ticket fare has raised three times the previous fare, Previously they were charging around Rs30 for adults and Rs15 for kids I believe now, they are charging Rs150 for adult and Rs100 for kids. You don’t have to pay that much for just crocodile, Insisted you can visit Zoo or Children’s park the one is in Guindy

Amazingly Amazing
Mar 2020
Hundreds of crocodiles in one place, wow is the word, Enjoyed seeing them making sound, their lazy walking and sleeping together without fighting. There are different kinds, Thursday would be better as they feed them, huge ones I have never seen before. Also, there is a snake venom extraction place. Learnt a lot about snakes and about snake bites and remedies, staff provided detailed explanation which was really helpful, they answer all your queries without any hesitation which is good. Overall, an awesome experience.
