Thailand is currently home to nearly 1 000 crocodile farms. Worldwide, more than a million crocodiles are killed for their skin and meat.
Dozens of crocodiles escaped from a crocodile farm in Thailand this month, but were all either caught or killed. Nearly 1000 crocodile farms currently operate in Thailand.
Worldwide, more than a million crocodiles, most of them from farms, are killed annually for their skin, which is used for bags and shoes, and their meat, which is consumed for its alleged health benefits, mainly in China.
Crocodiles are together with birds the closest living relatives of dinosaurs. They are social animals. When stressed by noise, they have been observed to lay on each other in corners of their concrete pits in order to make it possible for some animals to climb over them and escape.
Animal activists are calling for a ban on fashion accessories made of crocodile skin. They have targeted French luxury brand Hermes, which is known for its bags made from animal skins.
