Crocodile farms and preserves nowadays are not absolutely exotic things, as they are in many countries, where these reptiles originally live. There people establish natural preserves and artificial farms and zoos to attract tourists. Thus, some countries breed crocodiles with a purpose not only to be esthetically delighted but also to have a closer look at these bloodthirsty predators.

But the main purpose of this reptile colony is to form an additional tourist traffic to the islands resorts and to bring money to the local budget due to the people's desire to have a look at this unusual crocodile paradise.
