Mashhad (IP)- Eighty farmed crocodiles from Malaysia were delivered to a crocodile farm in Mashhad, the capital of Khorasan Razavi Province in eastern Iran, for breeding on October 4, 2021.

Iran PressIran News: This species is one of the five most valuable species of crocodiles in the world.

The farm has directly and indirectly created employment for 75 people and will operate with three goals: tourism development, exports, and medicine.

Crocodiles are bred around the world for several reasons. The first reason is live sales, which are reproduced for research centers, zoos, and laboratories.

Another reason is to use the skin of this animal for various purposes.

Drug producing is another reason because crocodile blood has the strongest antibiotic called "crocodile" (commonly used street name for desomorphine), which is ten times stronger than the antibiotics on the market.

Crocodile production is also very attractive for creating crocodile parks, public visits, and attracting tourists.
