5.5 foot crocodile got trapped in Ponda, Goa

Imagine expecting to find fish in your nets but get a 5.5 foot crocodile instead! This actually happened in Ponda, Goa.

Volunteers from the NGO – Study and Awareness of Wildlife and Environment (SAWE) – came and rescued it. The scaly creature was released later on. The crocodile was a mugger. They aren’t man-eaters. This reptile must’ve entered the net to eat the small fish there and got stuck. 

It most probably got trapped in the night but was spotted by locals the next afternoon.
