The Crocodiles Breeding
Medan has the largest crocodile farm in Indonesia. Here one can see how the crocodile eggs are hatched, and then reared somewhere else. This farm is located at Asam Kumbang, 5 km from the heart of the city. Although this place is not well maintained due it’s short of funds but it may worth visiting. Since these crocodiles may not be exported or sold the owner must feed then from the entrance fee. In this garden we could see small crocodiles hatchlings to 25 years old crocodile.
They lived in the swamp and in small basins. There are about 2,700 crocodiles, which consist of down-stream crocodiles (buaya muara / Crocodylus porosus) and swamp crocodiles (Tomistoma schlegelii). Some of these crocodiles are trained for some stunts as tourist attraction. This Crocodile garden was opened for the public every day from 9.00 to 17.00.
