Welcome to Perth Zoo

You can watch the crocodile talk by clicking play on the video below. 


Perth Zoo’s half-tonne Estuarine Crocodile spends most of his time doing what crocs do best – conserving energy.

Let an expert tell you all about the natural behaviours of crocodiles.

He may look like a sunken log in a waterhole, but ‘Dangalabba’ is as real as they come. We promise! Despite what you see on TV, crocodiles only eat once a month through winter, thought their appetite picks up as the weather gets warmer. Between times, their survival depends on them conserving energy until they really need it, so they sink to the bottom of a waterhole or doze on its shores and wait for something delicious to come to the water’s edge.
