CrocTalk Conservation was the first facility in Canada to purchase the reproductions of The SuperCroc Skulls in 2006 from Dr Paul Sereno and Project Exploration in Chicago. With the investment from one of our very supportive and “dedicated to our cause” investors, my partner Brenda Bruce and myself were able to add this one of a kind attraction to our crocodilian educational program which has captivated minds of many thousands of our guests here at the now CrocTalk Zoo Society, in Kelowna BC.
In 2009, the Alberta’s Royal Tyrrell Museum also purchased the cast to include in an exhibit on fossils marking the 150th anniversary of the publication of Charles Darwin’s The Origin of Species.
This monster crocodile lived about 110 million years ago and was approximently 40ft long with a weight of 8-10 tons. Not something you want to see when you open your bedroom window in the morning!
The SuperCroc skulls and the infamous McGator family here at CrocTalk Zoo Society has attracted interested guests from all over the world to the Okanagan and continue to be a major attraction in British Columbia.
Other animals include of course the McGators, Alli, Lucy, Lucky and Later McGator! Alli McGator of course is the American Alligator that’s 8.5 ft long and 350 lbs. who you’ll witness respond to commands, come, back, stay, stop and no! The continued study and research I do with these incredible reptiles continues daily.
Other animals including our 6 species of crocodilians, 10 species of tortoises and turtles, bearded dragons, tarantulas, anphibians and lizards. Also many static exhibits including the skull of Gavialosuchus, the largest crocodilian skull found in one piece! “Mrs”, our interactive turkey and of course my newly acquired 3 Little Pot bellied Pigs, Larry, Moe and Curly! Such a joy to witness pushing and playing with their coloured balls and their entertaining antics daily. Never a dull moment round here.
The recent filming of a documentary with The Photo Warrior, and the PBS filming for KSPS Public TV in Spokane Wa. has all be very rewarding and makes for a very busy season with international tourists local and abroad.
CrocTalk Zoo Society is in the exciting relocation process to a much needed larger facility accommodating bus tours and larger numbers of guests and larger environments for our crocodiles, and welcomes any interested investment inquiries. Donations greatly appreciated and the opportunity to “Adopt and Animal” from the website are available (www.croctalk.com) and to be honest, necessary to continue with our “high quality” captive care that our animals deserve and are accustomed to receiving. Without the help of CrocTalk’s dedicated followers we would not be able to continue with our exciting educational programs here in Kelowna and the Okanagan, so a VERY BIG THANK YOU to you all! Let’s keep the Dream Alive!
“We can do Together what I Can’t do by Myself!” and remember that “Crocs Need Love Too!”
