Crocodile Farm

Crocodile Farm: We spotted quite a number of crocodiles in the wild, but it's hard to take interesting photos of eyes and noses poking out of the water at a long distance. Then I found out about a crocodile farm and animal sanctuary near Victoria Falls, and I thought it would be a good chance to get up close and personal.

Crocodile Farm: The farm has two sections; a public zoo-style area and a commercial breeding area. The zoo area had raised walkways so you can look down at the crocs in their pens.

Crocodile Farm: Each pen held about 150 crocodiles. They had about 40,000 crocodiles in total. That's enough for a lot of food, and a lot of handbags!

Crocodile Farm: During the tour, our guide dangled chunks of meat above the crocodile breeding pen, and the male crocodile was happy to pose for the camera.

Crocodile Farm: The red water isn't blood. It's a chemical added to the water for crocodile skin health reasons.
