CROCS: Ancient Predators in a Modern World opens to the public

Discover the long and complicated history of crocodilians, their influence in human cultures, and their precarious future in a world dominated by people. Come eye-to-eye with living crocodilians such as a Siamese crocodile, American alligator hatchlings, African dwarf crocodile, and American alligator. Living crocodilians range from tiny forest dwellers to behemoths that eat wildebeests, buffaloes, and occasionally people. In a human-dominated world, the future of crocodilians depends on our willingness to share space with large predators.

CROCS: Ancient Predators in a Modern World will immerse you in the realm of crocodilians with an engaging and entertaining experience, complete with interactive displays, artifacts, and live crocs!
