Adventureland is the place where a thousand crocodiles live, which are specifically bred and cared for. There are also a few alligators between crocodiles and some other animals, such as deer, snakes and lizards. You can
see the performance of the crocodiles hourly and you can admire them. The most popular crocodile in the park Bujang Kawi. He is the oldest crocodile at the farm and he weighs more than 454 kg. Bujang Kawi was born without teeth and that is the reason why coaches are not afraid to play with him. The park is open daily from 9:00 to 18:00. The highlight of the day is the crocodile show. This
is at 11:15 am and at 14:45 (check this out). The "man versus reptile" crocodile show is a contest between man and reptile. The spectators
are looking amazed at this spectacular show. Especially if the trainer gently tries to kiss a crocodile. Another highlight for the kids is a rickshaw ride pulled by a crocodile
