CONVERSION OF THE CROCODILE HALL WILHELMA STUTTGART
In 2005/2006 the crocodile hall in the Wilhelma in Stuttgart was converted and one modeled on the north Australian landscape. The crocodile hall was opened in March 2006 and four saltwater crocodiles, including two white ones, moved into the new quarter. The railing was installed with a double rope net construction. Because Australian estuarine crocodiles can jump up to 3 meters high. Crocodiles are extremely dangerous hunters. The double crocodile fence by Carl Stahl ARC gives visitors a “floating window cutout”. A close but safe view of the crocodiles.
