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.
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.
