A What. . . . . Where?

Anand: This Gujarat family had a surprise visitor in their house and it was not a human being. It was a five-foot crocodile. The creature was not in their drawing room, but their bathroom.

The incident took place on July 21 in a residential society in Anand district of Gujarat.

Bharat Patel was entering his bathroom when he saw the crocodile in one corner of the bathroom.

Shell-shocked, Patel informed his family and neighbours about the animal’s presence. Later, forest officials reached the spot, caged the animal and released it in a lake in a nearby village.

This is a story from Gujurat that doesn’t make me happy!   Yikes!   Have you faced animals while camping or maybe in your house that are unwanted and uninvited? One good thing was this was not Ahmedabad!

  1. My husband saw the curtain waving in our home in s-e Queensland, pulled it back thinking a gecko was behind the curtain, only to find himself facing a snake. He whipped our dog into the bedroom & when he returned, found the snake had left, hotly pursued by one of our cats. We later found out (and that’s when we screamed) that the snake had been a taipan, one of the deadliest snakes in Australia and renowned for its aggression. Most snakes will get out of your way, but the taipan will actively attack. Luckily for us the snake decided to beat a hasty retreat and luckily for our cat it didn’t bite it!

    Howdy, Anne. I found a much smaller reptile in the tub of my washing machine a few months back. My boyfriend was kind enough to get it out of there.

    I’m glad your news story didn’t include anyone being hurt by the croc!


  3. Whoa!!! I’ll have nightmares about it if I was them.
