"Unbelievable Crocodile Show" Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo Tip by Mikebb
Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo, Bangkok: 15 reviews and 30 photos
After visiting the Floating Market we travelled by coach to the Samphran Elephant Ground & Zoo for the live Crocodile Show. Two handlers were in the enclosure with 3 or four large crocs, there was little movement from each croc until the handler prodded and touched them. At first they did tricks like putting their arm into the open mouth and leaving it there for 5 seconds. Upon removal the croc would snapclose its mouth a millesecond after the handler removed his arm.
The show continued with similar tricks for 20 minutes before a large crowd in the tiered stand. Then, to end the show the Grandest of Tricks was performed. The handler eased up to a huge croc with open jaws and eased his head between the jaws for 10 to 15 seconds, his head was really between the jaws as my photo shows. The crowd loved this demonstration and erupted with applause. A very fine show. There was no entry fee as it was included in the day tour.
