Ruthless predators and amazing creatures whose eyes have seen the past since the time of ancient dragons. The only survived representatives of the archosaurs and one of the most revered animals whose history began more than 80 million years ago. Symbols of power and strength. In their honor, the Egyptians erected sacred temples, as evidenced by embalmed reptile mummies in ancient tombs and rocky drawings of the crocodile god Sebek. The human will to follow the rules of capricious fashion and wear clothes made of crocodile skin led to the mass extermination of crocodiles in the 19th-20th centuries. As a result, the food chain was disrupted. Piranhas began to dominate in waters, and people created crocodile farms to correct their mistakes and restore the natural balance. The most widespread crocodile farms are in Thailand.

The Samutprakarn in the vicinity of Bangkok is the largest crocodile farm in Thailand and the world. More than 100 thousand crocodiles live here, including the world-famous Yai, over 6 meters long and over a ton in weight. Initially, the farm project had an exclusively environmental status, but it began to attract attention and quickly turned into a landmark of the country. Annually, thousands of tourists from all over the world visit the farm to become spectators of the legendary crocodile show where experienced trainers risk their lives. For half an hour, brave tamers arrange a spectacular performance: they lie on the predators’ backs, put the head and arms into crocodile jaws. At first glance, animals seem to be slow and clumsy. Actually, they have a lightning-fast reaction, and no reptiles can compete with their jaws. Although local shows are considered safe, you can never be sure of the final.
