    More about Madras Crocodile Bank, Chennai and Historical Information

    The Madras Crocodile Bank Trust and Centre for Herpetology is a zoo for reptilian animals. It is located 40 kilometres south city of Chennai and is a registered trust and a recognized zoo under the Wildlife (Protection) Act, 1972.

    The Bank Trust was founded by veteran herpetologist and wildlife activist Romulus Whitaker. Whitaker established the bank in an attempt to replenish the decreasing number of crocodiles in nature.

    Initially, the bank was established to keep the crocodiles safe and to facilitate their breeding. The crocodiles were kept in the park until they were healthy enough to live in their habitat. Nevertheless, as the wilderness thinned, the practice was called to a halt. The Madras Crocodile Bank accommodate these creatures themselves and are open to the public six days of the week.

    Although the Madras Crocodile Bank allows you to take a look at the reptiles in captivity, it is not to be confused with a zoo. Unlike any zoo, this park has more in-depth functionality through ex-situ and in-situ conservation. The Crocs Bank is a great place to spend a day of learning while looking at some of nature’s most fantastic creatures.
