Face-to-face with a 5m-long False Gharial. This species is very endangered and has been placed on top priority for captive breeding at Singapore Zoo. Not common in zoos.

      The tank looks a bit murky
    • Zooish
      Yup it does, its an old exhibit (built in the late 80s or early 90s) and the tank's a bit mossy... but the crocs seem to like it.

      Anyway its being upgraded at the moment - changing the filtration system, replacing the glass panels and re-doing the mockrock which has been worn down.
