At the Teluk Sengat Crocodile Farm, Mr Ng, Malaysia's own Crocodile Hunter and a third- generation crocodile farmer, gamely brings visitors on a tour of these snapping reptiles.
There are more than 1,000 of them in this farm, including a toothless 130-year-old croc passed on from his grandfather. Past its prime, this geriatric prefers to spend its golden years sunbathing rather than scaring away the visitors.
The crocs here are of the saltwater crocodile species (Crocodylus Porosus). As you venture deeper into the farm, you may notice that the crocodiles keep getting bigger. Mr Ng may also oblige trigger-happy tourists by going right to the water’s edge to stir up some “excitement” for that perfect photo moment.
Leave the farm with interesting facts on crocodiles, and take home some souvenirs. The farm is open from 9am to 6pm. Entrance fees are MYR 8 for adults and MYR 4 for children (prices subject to change)
The Teluk Sengat Crocodile Farm is a one-hour drive from Johor Bahru and 20 minutes from Kota Tinggi Town.
