It’s certainly a snappy look. 

The city of Bursa in northwest Turkey is home to a 44,000-seat arena in the shape of a giant crocodile. 

Dwarfing the tower blocks surrounding it, the green-hued stadium features a huge ‘mouth’ that reaches a height of 140ft (43m) that sports fans can walk into, with its body curving around the pitch.

The arena, called Timsah Park, which translates to ‘Crocodile Park’ in English, opened in December 2015 after a four-year build project that cost in the region of £8million ($8.5million). 

The design was inspired by the stadium’s home team, Bursaspor – nicknamed the ‘green crocodiles’.

According to the YouTube channel Gran Turism Football Stadium, Timsah Park also features underground parking for more than 640 cars, 35 catering points and 789 toilets.

In December 2017, the stadium witnessed a record attendance of 38,108, when Bursaspor played Istanbul-based rivals Fenerbahce.

And what do members of the public think? Twitter user Gokhan Keskin described it as ‘the best stadium in the world’, while ‘@FuzzyRuckus’ called it ‘epic’.

For those wishing to visit Timsah Park, it is located about five kilometres from the city centre, in the north-western region of the city.
