Puerto Pincessa : Crocodile farm

The farm is found near the heart of Puerto Princesa City, about 20 to 30 minutes away by tricycle or minicab. Apart from its conservation role, the farm operates commercially by breeding and raising crocodiles, and eventually harvesting them for their meat and skin. Crocodile skin can be used for producing leather, while crocodile meat, often described to taste like chicken meat, is considered a delicacy. There are actually famous restaurants in Puerto Princesa City, like Kinabuch, that serve dishes out of crocodile meat.

The guided tour starts at the museum where one has to sign up and pay the entrance fee of P25 before entering. Among others, the museum features the skeletal remains of the largest crocodile caught in the Philippines. It has a length of about 5 meters from the nose to the tip of the tail, and was discovered to have eaten half the body of a human. One can also see dioramas and portraits showing how Filipinos deal with these creatures then and now.

So here are the the living,  scaring crocodiles...

There are also different kinds of animals there!

Like this bird:)

I believe this is an ostrich...

turtles which my grandchildren loved....

another kind of animal creatures which I forgot the name!

And here are my sweet crocodiles!

old and young sweet crocodiles:)

They are a couple:)

And my youngest grandchild that time whom his father had to carry all the way. Afraid of crocodiles:)

We are all smiling, but scary inside. Luckily, the mouth of the crocodile was tied with an unseen string.

And before we leave, we went to the souveiner shop who sells lots of souvenirs.

Bye for now! See you in my next post at Baker hill:)


  1. Hindi ko kinaya ang mga crocodile mommy Joy (jeg føler meg kvalm) kinilabutan ako! Btw, is it safe po ba to travel to Palawan? Gustong-gusto ko pumunta dyan but my friend said nakakatakot daw delikado.

    1. LA naman ako narinig about na delikado don. In fact dami ngang tourist. Pero siyempre need mo mag book sa agency para may mag sundo sa inyo airport at may mag drive back and forth kung san man kayo punta. Gnaon ang ginawa ng anak ko " mitchi photostory" sa pinas. may contact sya. Good luck to you.

  2. Hi Joy, my mom and I will be visiting Puerto for some bonding time.. i'm sure I can squeeze in a visit to the farm.. xox

  3. yes, you will enjoy it:) good luck to both of you:)

  4. Great pictures of the farm and family. But, I can do without the crocks. Blessings and hugs to you Joy!

  5. Hmmm, Im not a fan of crocodiles. Baka i-skip ko itong trip na ito kapag nagpunta kami dyan, hehe.
