Now thats what you call a rude awakening.
Guy Whittall got the fright of his life when he discovered an 8ft long crocodile hiding under his bed in Zimbabwe.
The 40-year-old slept with the 150kg beast lying quietly beneath him for more than eight hours after it snuck into his Humani lodge.
Thankfully, the croc didnt snap as the unsuspecting Mr Whittall dangled his feet over the bed the next morning as he went about organising his day.
The really disconcerting thing about the whole episode is the fact that I was sitting on the edge of the bed that morning, bare foot and just centimetres away from the croc, he explained.
Crocodiles are experts at hiding, thats why they have survived on Earth for so long and why they are the ultimate killers in water.
He added: The crocodile came from the Turgwe River which is a couple of kilometres from the house.
They often wander about the bush especially when its cold and raining. I think he liked it under the bed because it was warm.
He was only alerted to the danger when he heard the screams of a petrified housemaid as he ate breakfast.
The croc was eventually tied up with rope before being released him back into Humanis Chigwidi dam.
I just remember thinking goodness gracious, thats one for the books, Mr Whittall, who is a director at Humani, added.
Im pretty sure everyone in Humani checks under their bed before going to sleep now anyway.
sorry you'll have to cut and paste, don't have a clue how to do a link. This one is a hoot too
cats win over gators
That’s them folks from Louisiana.
They will cook and eat anything that don’t eat them first, and it always taste good.
Imagine that! An 8 foot crocodile that was afraid of “the monsters in the dark”!
Now that’s the start to a rough day. Electrocuted and then almost eaten alive...
Of course, I’m just going by the title...
I hear you. A few nights ago I had to stop an idiot from killing a bat that had gotten into my apartment building. The poor thing was sound asleep and no threat to anyone (the bat, not the idiot), and I’d already called the Humane Society.
I hate violent idiots.
Someone wanted to kill a Louisville Slugger?
I always hear about Florida and their problem with snakes.
Import a couple of coonasses and their cook pots, give them 30 days, and between the two of them they will have 60 different ways to cook and eat them and it will be good. Problem solved.
