Australian police are looking for the owner of a small crocodile found wandering the streets of Melbourne on Christmas Day, media reports said.
Residents out on an evening stroll stumbled across the reptile outside a suburban business, the BBC said.
Victoria Police said they were initially sceptical and went to the scene expecting to find a large lizard. Instead they found a one-metre long freshwater crocodile “sitting quietly on the footpath”.
Snake catcher Mark Pelley was called to handle the unusual Christmas find in the suburb of Heidelberg Heights.
