Bird Park in Phuket features tropical species: Hornbills, parrots, crocodiles. It is definitely worth the visit to get to see a bird show and tour the park.
Hornbills are very colorful and smart birds. Parrots are known to enjoy interacting with people, which sometimes becomes very entertaining.
My interaction with crocodiles was short and spooky: while I stood above a pool with crocodiles one of them silently swam close to me and silently appeared on a cement ramp of the pool next to me. Crocodiles move slow, undetected in the water. When they are resting outside with open jaws, they seem to be not alive. But it's all to fool a next victim, prey. Crocodiles are fast and fierce predators, that survived for 200 million years on earth. Even humans, the most fearsome predators ever to stalk the earth, have failed to force into extinction any of the 23 species of crocodilians.
I was able to capture an eye to eye moment with a predator. Take a look!
