Today would be the our last day in Sandakan. As our flight back to KL was scheduled in the evening and we still had sometime to spare, so off we went to Sandakan Crocodile Farm.
The owner of the farm also owns another Crocodile Farms in Langkawi and Tuaran, Sabah. The Sandakan Crocodile Farm is Malaysia's largest with over 3000 of the reptiles. The original stock came from wild crocodiles found along the Kinabatangan River. The animals are farmed for their skins to be turned into shoes and bags and their meat is also known to help cure asthma.
Besides offering visitors an up-close look at Sabah's biggest reptiles, the farm hosts several other attractions as well, including crocodile and snake shows. It also features a mini zoo with mouse deers, monkeys, turtles, peacocks, snakes, etc.

The drive from Sandakan town to the farm takes about half an hour.
