Arrival of baby West African Dwarf Crocodiles

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

After approximately 5 years with us Gorden the Caiman is moving on to a new home in Oxfordshire as part of the ‘Crocodiles of the World display’ owned by ‘Croc Man’ Shaun Foggett.

Shaun was brave enough to enter the enclosure in order to capture Gorden and box him up ready for the long journey to his new home. We wish them both a safe journey and hope to hear lots about Gordens new life surrounded by crocs.


Lakes Aquarium is pleased to be working alongside Shaun in his conservation and breeding programme of West African Dwarf Crocodiles.

Four crocs have now made Lakes Aquarium home and will stay here until they are old enough to become part of the breeding programme run by Shaun.
