    Nice and engaging video for the specialist Madras Crocodile Bank.

    The Batagur baska project is a combined Schoennbrunn Wien Zoo and MCB project. The male was sent on breeding loan to MCB and after introduction to their 0,2 mated and the females produced their first fertile clutch of eggs. These hatched, which is only the second time in captivity.
