Crocodile

Dozens of crocodiles on the loose

The owners of a crocodile park near a resort in Thailand reported that several dozen crocodiles have fled the park after the floods have hit the area. The park has more than two thousand specimens of these animals.


The park is located in Pattaya, a coastal town near a tourist resort. The Daily Telegraph quoted a spokesman for the park, who said that they had captured 28 crocodiles that were on the loose.

However, the same spokesman did not say how many crocodiles are still on the loose in the region. The park’s crocodiles vary between two and four meters long.


The floods that inundated the area on weekend caused the escape of animals in the park, and people fear for their safety while the real number of animals that are on the loose is still unknown.
