To help in the research on reptiles and participate in the protection of these animals in the wild, this farm is inserted in a huge tropical greenhouse of 8000 square meters.
Created by Luc Fougeiroles in 1994, this farm, heated by heat recovery plant "Eurodif" receive more than 350 crocodiles (9 different species).
Since 1998, a research laboratory has been added to the Crocodile Farm, and ten giant tortoises from the Seychelles, a protected species, joined the crocodiles. They are 30 years old and weight from 80 to 150 kilos each.
Even if in the wild, turtles are a delightful meal for the crocs, here that's not a problem at all....
