For a fascinating experience, head to the Crocodile Bank in Mamallapuram. Housed here are crocodile and alligator species found in India and Africa in their natural habitat; a special presence being the remarkable Indian gharial. There are ample opportunities to observe the behaviour and activities of the reptiles from a safe distance. There are pits scattered all over the bank that house hundreds of crocodiles and alligators. Additionally, the bank also hosts snakes and turtles that live in replicas of their natural habitats. Living in the vicinity is a tribal society that runs a venom extraction centre. Every hour, they put on a venom extraction display that is extremely interesting to attend. The Crocodile Bank makes a fun excursion for those who want to learn more about reptiles in their natural habitat.
