Dad Finds Croc In Bathroom When Going For A Shower

Dad Finds Croc In Bathroom When Going For A Shower

An Indian man got a shock when he went to take a shower - and almost stood on a huge crocodile that was hiding in his bathroom.

Kalpesh Patel, 41, said: "At first I didn't even know if it was alive, I just stood there staring at it in my bath robe and then suddenly I saw it blink, and I turned round and ran off as fast as I could – slamming the door behind me."

He said when he had told his wife and kids not to go in the bathroom because there was a massive crocodile in there, they had not believed him at first.

But he had got neighbours at Sojitra village in Anand district of Gujarat, located about 80 kilometres from the city of Ahmedabad, to also look in the bathroom and they confirmed the crocodile was there.

He said: "I have no idea how it got into the house or even why it went there, but we weren't prepared to let it out again. We called the police who arranged for forestry officials to capture the crocodile. The last I saw was them taking it away in a cage."

Local police said that the crocodile had been transported to a lake in the nearby Malataj village of Anand district where it had been released unharmed.

Although the initial report was treated with scepticism, this photo taken at the scene of the crocodile in the bathroom was posted online and quickly shared on social media networks proving that the man's story was true.
