Have you been in to visit our Sunda gharial crocodiles in their amazing swamp forest habitat?
In this video our senior ectotherm keeper Julie details freshwater crocodiles Malu and Sumpit’s arrival from Krokodille Zoo in Denmark. Ahead of their arrival, Julie spent time in Denmark with the expert team there, where she was able to learn more about the species and how they are cared for.

Shy and secretive, Sunda gharial crocodiles are one of the world’s largest crocodilian species (able to reach up to 5-6 metres in length) and are renowned for their slender, distinctive snouts.
