Just 10 minutes drive from where I am staying is Jong's crocodile farm. Today I decided to spend my high tea with the crocs. At around 3.00 pm daily the crocodiles are fed. The feeding time is great show for visitors and tourists who are charged RM 10 per entry ( adults). Besides watching crocodiles other animals and birds are kept for additional interest like monkeys, bear cat, pheasants and peacocks, eagles, phytons, iguanas, fishes and peking ducks. The farm covers an area of 25 acres and there are about 500 crododiles here bred successfully in captivity after many years of trial and error. The farm is a private undertaking.
The main course on the menu is raw chicken meat served in chunks and whole pieces. From above the hut one man throws chunks of meat to many quarrelsome crocs below and for the adventurous ones a whole chicken meat is lowered by means of a pulley to the center of the pond for the taking. I saw a few tried this difficult challenge and were successful to the applause of spectators.
