Experience the thrill of meeting an Apex predator.


Come face to face with Selung our 7’ Asian Water Monitor. You will be able to enter his home and get amazingly close to this Apex predator. An expert keeper will be on hand to answer any questions you have about this giant lizard, find out where they are from, why their tongue is long and how they hunt their prey. By taking part in this experience you will be supporting Crocodiles of the World’s vital conservation work.
