A number of the BCA Zoo team had the opportunity to attend a crocodile husbandry training day hosted by Crocodiles of the World, the only crocodile zoo in the UK.

The intention was for the team to learn how to care for these incredible animals in captivity with the possibility of housing some at the zoo in the future. The event was an extremely useful exercise with many aspects of crocodile care being learnt, ranging from handling, training, diet and heating/lighting requirements.

If you ever get the opportunity to visit Crocodiles of the World then do so – It’s a great place to visit with the team there doing an amazing job.
