Here in Australia we have a rather famous old Croc (crocodile) he is called Elvis, and he is mean, he is known as Australia’s crankiest croc. Elvis is a saltwater croc about 5meters or 16.4 feet long, so he is also rather large. Elvis lives in a Reptile Park at Somersby which is north of Sydney, and is 50 years old.
You get it! No, you. Snappy Australian Reptile Park resident Elvis lurks next to the sunken Victa after he snatched the lawnmower from staff, snapping two of his teeth off in the process. Picture: Gary Graham (from The Telegraph picture gallery)
Staff went to mow inside Elvis’s enclosure, which is done regularly, but on this day it seems Elvis was not a happy croc, (normal for him actually) and he took a lunge at the staff, so they put the lawnmowers in-between them and Elvis. So of course Elvis grabbed one of the mowers, in the process he lost 2 of his teeth, and then he stood guard over the mower for more than an hour.
