While crocodiles are common in Australia, most people prefer to keep a safe distance from them.
But that didn't stop one crocodile from making himself feel right at home inside a residential property.
Earlier this week, a family from Darwin discovered a 5’6” saltwater crocodile wandering around a partially-enclosed area of their home. It’s suspected that the juvenile crocodile had been hunting the dog, whose barking had alerted the family of the dangerous visitor.
Crocodiles are territorial creatures, and officials believe that the unwanted house guest was forced out of its nearby habitat by an even larger crocodile.
Rangers were able to corral the nosey croc, and it has been safely relocated to a crocodile farm.
