A visit to Crocodile Encounter is a teacher's dream field trip. Easy, fun, informative
and 100% guaranteed to hold your groups interest. Load up your students and bring them to see the crocs of Crocodile Encounter.
Crocodile Encounter is the Houston areas best school field trip experience!
The best field trip period. Cost effective, fun, educational. Do
not confuse Crocodile Encounter with a typical alligator farm. Crocodile Encounter is the only teaching zoo in the state of
Texas. Crocodile Encounter's field trip experience is designed to be fully interactive and informative for your students
while maintaining childrens safety. Fully guided each tour will take your field trip group through a variety of
animal habitats and allows each group to experience these animals up close and personal.
Make your school field trip fun and educational with Crocodile Encounter in combination with
Brazos Bend State park. Our facility is designed by educators with Houston area school field trips in mind. Spend your
morning with us feeding tortoises, watching croc shows, and taking in the snake/lizard show then hop on your bus for a short
20 minute ride to Brazos Bend State park and see wild alligators and stunning landscape of one of the best state parks
in Texas. Brazos Bend is free for all school groups and has great pavilions for your lunch as well as walking trails for students
to enjoy nature. The combination of the two locations is an unbelievably great value and a real chance for educators to give
students an experience they may otherwise not get in their life. We also often recommend the Brazos River County park which has excellent facilities and playground equipment just a few minutes
from Crocodile Encounter. Watching a giant crocodile feed and then seeing native alligators in their habitat is a resonating
day for students of all age groups. The word is spreading about this idea with Houston area teachers routinely saying
'best field trip ever'. Call for information on scheduling your trip today. Our facility grows every year and most groups
come year after year. It is never the same twice. For fast field trip answers to common questions please check our FAQ.

What you get with a Crocodile
Encounter field trip
field trips are comprehensive educational shows that last around 2 hours. We divide your group into multiple guided sections
and then we rotate between the following:
Alligator show and feeding
Nile crocodile show and feeding
Saltwater crocodile show
Mammal area with capybara, warthogs, potbellied pigs and the world's largest antelope
Perfectly safe guided tours give your students
a real feel of what it is like to work with large reptilian predators every day. See what the crocs eat, their burrows, how
they bask and swim, watch them jump and be trained by command. Feed the tortoise herd and take as many pictures as your
camera can hold. Touch and feel snakes and lizards from around the world. Enjoy fun and educational presentations from Crocodile
Encounter's experienced group of presenters and top it all of by feeding the eland herd for the grand finale!
Each visit to Crocodile Encounter is presented in a series of segments. This allows us to accomadate
even large groups of several hundred visitors. As one group is touring the crocodile segment of the facility another group
is with the turtles/tortoises, snakes/lizards, the alligators, or the mammal section of Crocodile Encounter. The facility
is designed to allow for an easy flow of one segment into the next to create a seemless educational experience for our visitors.
There is nothing like Crocodile Encounter in the Houston area or all of Texas. Built by educators with educational groups
as the primary focus. From the layout to the narration Crocodile Encounter is an educational experience with real BITE!
