After a While, Crocodile

2-Meter Crocodile Captured Near Mas, Ubud

(1/19/2014) A 2-meter long crocodile that has frightened villagers near Ubud has been rounded up and sent to a new home at the Bali Zoo in Singapadu.

Villagers fishing, bathing and washing in the Wasan River near Banjar Juga at Mas near Ubud were shocked by the occasional appearance of a 2-meter long crocodile.

After a search over several days by villagers and Animal Welfare Officers, the crocodile was traced to a small cave. The reptile cave was broken open allowing its capture and removal to its new home at the Bali Zoo.

Officials are baffled by the origins of the sole reptile believed to have once been the pet of a villager who allowed its release into the river.
