Crocodile found in London park
Saturday 20 June 1998
AN "EXOTIC LIZARD" found wandering around in a park was put in a terrapin tank where it promptly ate the terrapins.
A subsequent examination at London Zoo revealed the "lizard" was in fact a baby Caiman crocodile which could grow up to 8ft long in its wild habitat.
It was discovered by Robert Gwyther from Downham, South London, at his local park. He presented it to his friend who decided it would be a novel addition to his tank with the fatal results, said the RSPCA.
