Crocodile Park

After the success of the Tropical house which enabled the visitors a different way of experience, the concept of moving-freely-around animals was implemented in the "Emmerich Schlosser-Krokipark" as well.

As a curiosity, one part of the bottom of the water tank was made from glass so that the visitors can see directly into the crocodile tank, right away in the entrance hall.

Crocodiles count without a doubt among the biggest Reptiles in the world: alligators, gharials and the actual crocodiles.

You can observe the yacare caimans in the Haus des Meeres. The habitat of this species is South America, as well as of all other species of caiman. The yacare caiman feeds mainly on fish, turtles and water birds. Luckily for all other “fellow inhabitants”, they are used to dead-animals feed and don’t show any aggression or interest to hunt.

Many exhibited fish are favorite meal in their land of origin, for example pangasius.

Most of the birds in the Crocodile Park originate from Africa. Lamprotornis, Turacos and Tocos count among the most characteristic ones. The best singing birds of the African continent are the slender-billed starlings. They could put up with our domestic Nightingale or blackbird.

The most striking birds in flight are definitely Turacos.

 

 

 

No other bird of the African savanna fascinate the visitors like the Toco, especially the southern yellow-billed hornbill. In Africa people call it Flying Banana because of the color and shape of its bill.

As the only mammals there is one family of cotton-top tamarins in the Crocodile Park. They inhabit only a small area in north Colombia and count among the most endangered species of the New World monkeys.
