A 120 centimeters long crocodile was found in a pond inside a temple in Phuket.
The Phuket Fisheries Office was notified yesterday (September 2nd) that a crocodile was found in a pond in a temple on the Toh Sae Hill in Rassada sub-district, Mueang Phuket district.
Officials went to the temple to find the crocodile at 120 centimeters long. Monks in the temple said they have no idea who released the crocodile in the pond. They are afraid that the crocodile might hurt other people who feed turtles in the pond.
