Davao City - A Glimpse of Davao Crocodile Park

The Davao Crocodile Park is a tourist destination in Davao that showcases a ‘state of the art’ crocodile farming system in the Philippines, equipped with modern facilities and equipment. Apart from crocodiles, other exotic animal species such as raptors, monkeys, bearcats, snakes, birds, and various reptiles can be found in the park. (?)

The major attraction is "Pangil", the largest crocodile inside the park. There are shows in the afternoon called "The Pangil Encounter", where caretakers get inside the cage and with a stick, probes Pangil. This prompts him to move towards the stick and kick his tail, splashing water to the spectators around. Katakot!!! Hehehe!

A tour at the Davao Crocodile Park is not part of our itinerary. But since the Davao Wildwater Adventure Inc. is stationed inside the park, we were able to get inside without paying any entrance fee.

So, while waiting for the rafting orientation to start, we had a chance to see what it offers. Sorry we're not able to take a photo of the crocodiles. :( Crocodile park, pero wala kami shots ng crocodiles... Hahaha!!!
