New rules will allow more crocodiles in NZ zoos

New rules will allow more crocodiles in New Zealand zoos.

Under the new rules, live crocodiles and eggs will be able to be imported from the EU, Asia and the Pacific.

Currently, we can only get crocodiles from Australia. 

The move coincides with Auckland Zoo building a new $50 million southeast Asian attraction which will open this year.

A wider range of crocodile species will also be allowed in.

The crocodiles and eggs must come from animals hatched and raised in captivity.

However, any crocodile coming into New Zealand must be held in isolation in their country of departure for 30 days and be disease free before being allowed around the country.
