On our way to the historical sites of Bagamoyo, my friend and Dar es Salaam tour guide, Ezekiel, made a pitstop at a crocodile farm.
At first I thought it was a tourist attraction, then after of some explanation I was told that they farm the crocodiles for meat in Asia and clothing in Europe. I don't think PETA would be too happy with what's going on in Bagamoyo. Me on the other hand thought it was a cool experience to get up close and personal with crocodiles. Add that to my list of firsts while in Tanzania.

The place was far from the main road

Considering I still have all my fingers and can type this blog post, I didn't get a chance to be Steve Irwin for the day
Where they lay their eggs
I'll save the details, but this is where a live crocodile becomes a pair of shoes
