Rare Crocodile Found In FloridaRare Crocodile Found In Florida, After finding a crocodile in his St. Petersburg, Florida backyard, Shondra Farner called to report it. But when she called the wildlife authorities of their find, they did not believe him, reports The Christian Science Monitor.

“He said, ‘No, ma’am, you have a crocodile, and said,’ No, I know the difference.” It took some time, but finally convinced officials that the animal lurking in your backyard was actually a crocodile.

The Commission of Fish and Wildlife Conservation failed to kill rare animals crocodiles are considered endangered. Therefore, set out to catch the animals in cages and beef loins.

Officials release the animal in Tampa Bay. According to Yahoo, you can implant a magnet to disorient the animals and prevent a recurrence of the neighborhood.

Farner, who lives in a gated community, was surprised by the incredible view of the animal.

“That big boy is about 8 feet from our patio. It’s terribly scary looking. And fast. When he turned to leave, I could not believe how fast it was,” he said.

Farner had recently traveled to Costa Rica, and I have seen crocodiles there. Immediately recognized the triangular snout.

The crocodile last seen in the area was in 2008, and authorities speculate that this could be the same. There has never been a documented alligator bite in Florida, although occasionally people bitten by alligators.
