Along with the Cologne Zoo has bred for the first time in Europe Philippine crocodile (Crocodylus mindorensis).  Zoo has the largest breeding base in Europe for this kind of crocodile- three unrelated couples. Siamese crocodile (Crocodylus siamensis) Zoo has bred for the first time in the Czech Republic and gradually spread to other zoos in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Crocodile Zoo Protivín wants to reproduce other endangered species of crocodiles too. Zoo has a wide breeding base in Indian gavial (Gavialis gangeticus) and false gavials (Tomistoma schlegelii). Any offspring will be passed on to other breeders, from whom we expect to post into this fund. The main aim of breeding work, however, will be the reintroduction of bred crocodiles ie. Get back to nature.
