The crocodile that lives in a shopping centre



Dubai has the world’s tallest building, the biggest shopping centre and is now home to one of the world’s largest crocodiles.

Weighing more than 750kg (118 stone) and over 5m (16ft) in length, King Croc is still growing.

After leaving the wild and making his way to an Australian city centre, he was moved to a protected environment at a crocodile farm in Queensland.

His latest home is a purpose built attraction at the Dubai Aquarium, in Dubai Mall, where the sounds and vegetation of his natural habitat have been recreated.
