Tunis part 2 - Crocodile Park in Djerba

Crocodile Park in Djerba
Travel to Djerba (Tunisie) - june 2004.
The crocodile day!
Crocodile Park in Djerba 
Home to hundreds of Nile River crocodiles that at full growth can be 6 metres in length! The sight of these humongous creatures, some with their jaws open, sunning themselves in placid pools and the tropical glasshouse will send a shiver down your spine. Known as a "man-eater", the creatures have been hated, revered especially in ancient Egypt where crocodiles were mummified, and even worshipped.
