Hatching of Crocodylus siamensis and Mating of Crocodylus palustris

Good news for all of the Zoo visitors. Young crocodiles have been hatching. So far, the first Crocodylus siamensis of this year has been born (see the photo). This means a great success, this species is endangered critically. In the incubator, which is being located directly within the exposition, you can find eggs of both Crocodylus siamensis and those of Crocodylus rhombifer which are going to hatch in the coming weeks. Furthermore, mating of Crocodylus palustris is proceeding. These crocodiles have been mating  exclusively in the presence of visitors who can then follow the reproductive cycle, which is very rare.
