If you love doing something out of the ordinary during your travels, then the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust is rank very high on your list of must-visit places.
Home to 14 species of crocodiles along with a large number turtles, snakes, and even lizards, this is one zoo trip you are unlikely to forget soon.
Make sure you check out South Asia's biggest crocodile—a 17-foot monster weighing more than a ton.
Another cool attraction is the daily venom extraction show where you can see venom being extracted from snakes in real time. A great destination for yourself and your kids to learn more about the reptilian kingdom.Places nearby:
