Owner description: Originally started with a more serious conservation point of view, Crocodile Bank is now the weekend spot for a fascinating day of herpetology. For the kids, it’s a special treat to see large crocs spend the day languorously by the water. The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology also allows adults to volunteer and gain hands-on experience in the field.

Crocodile Park is a fun to place to see.There are lot of amphibious animals here. They are well maintained and looked after. There are so many crocodiles everywhere. Its a must see when in Madras, Trust me its better than the ones Malaysia and Singapore.

Tons and tons of crocodiles.... you can learn and kids love it.
The facts and figures given in all the enclosures can stimulate research and learning.
The special enclosure with 160+ poisonous snake and venom extraction is a great sight.
Be prepared for a nice long stroll through the park/ bank.
Downside are the stinky smell and lack of car parking facility !
Worth spending half a day here along with your kids

As we were driving from Mahabalipuram back to Chennai, we stopped at this attraction. Full disclosure, I'm afraid of snakes and my 17 year old son is not at all excited about crocodiles, but this was great place to stop. The snake extraction exhibition was closed for the day for unknown reasons (but that didn't bother me one bit). There was a wide variety of crocs there and I learned a lot about crocs because of the good signage there. It's sort of like a crocodile zoo. It also had a few species of snakes in aquariums and some komodo dragons and water monitors. We spent about an hour there and saw all there was to see. If you are in Chennai, I didn't think it was worth the drive to see it, but since we were already there it was definitely worth the stop. Only 60Indian Rupees for an adult. A bargain at twice the price!

My husband and I went here and both enjoyed our visit, there are so many crocodiles in a small area. It is well kept. There is also a large python and a Kimodo Dragon. We met some lovely school children and two of their teachers whilst we were visiting.

Hi all ,

Went to crocodile bank for the first time with my 2 year old daughter ... and she loved it ... very well maintained , the turtle tanks should be cleaned more often though as it was not much visible . Many types of crocodiles and snakes . My daughter loved it and we loved it too . There was a live demo of a python and very informative ..

Good place to go for children and animal lovers

Cheers !!!

Hi Nitesh, Thanks for your good review! Many turtles live in murky water so we've tried to recreate their ecosystems as much as possible! Do visit us again soon!
