After a request from Dan, here is a thread about Crocodile Zoo in Denmark. Crocodile Zoo is a small tropical zoo in the south of Denmark. It has been built mainly by one man, the owner René Hedegaard. It is situated in an old farm a about a kilometer from the nearest railway station in the small city of Eskilstrup. It houses the largest collection of crocodilians in Europe with 21 out of the 23 different species. This is also the second-largest in the world surpassed only by St. Augustine in Florida. Crocodile Zoo currently keeps: Caimans Cuvier's dwarf caiman (Paleosuchus palpebrosus) Smooth-fronted caiman (Paleosuchus trigonatus) Spectacled caiman (Caiman crocodilus) Broad-snouted caiman (Caiman latirostris) Yacare caiman (Caiman yacare) Black caiman (Melanusuchus niger) Alligators American alligator (Alligator mississippipiensis) Chinese alligator (Alligator sinensis) Crocodiles West African dwarf crocodile (Osteolaemus tetraspis) Mugger crocodile (Crocodylus palustris) Cuban crocodile (Crocodylus rhombifer) Siamese crocodile (Crocodylus siamensis) Slender-snouted crocodile (Crocodylus cataphractus) Morelet's crocodile (Crocodylus moreletii) New Guinea crocodile (Crocodylus novaeguineae) Philippine crocodile (Crocodylus mindorensis) Australian freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnsoni) Saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus) Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) Tomistoma or false gharial (Tomistoma schlegeli) Gharials Gharial (Gavialis gangeticus) So the only species missing are American crocodile (Crocodylus acutus) and Oricono crocodile (Crocodylus intermedius). Crocodile Zoo also keeps and breeds various other reptiles, such as anacondas and spurred tortoises, as well as cotton-top tamarins and some parrots. The zoo is nothing huge or spectacular which is really a shame. The exhibits look small to the common visitor, but are actually quite complex and perfect for the crocodilians. The pools are way deeper than you can see and the crocs can completely slip away from the visitors' eyes. Also, not all species are displayed at once. The are rotated between the public viewing area and some backstage exhibits for privacy. This has proven to improve the breeding rates of some species. The zoo is very committed in different conservation projects including crocodiles, specifically the gharial and philippine crocodile. The owner, René Hedegaard, is also the only member of the Crocodile Specialist Group in Northern Europe. Many of the endangered species at the zoo has also bred. Some European zoo-enthusiasts will probably know Crocodile Zoo for having imported all the young philippine crocodiles for Crocodile Zoo, Chester Zoo, London Zoo, Cologne Zoo and Zürich Zoo. The Dutchies may also have heard of the zoo when it supplied 2.2 broad-snouted caimans to Burgers Bush last year.
