What a morning! Our reptile keepers were mowing the lawn in Elvis the crocodile's enclosure when BAM!

Out of nowhere, he lunged at one of the mowers, dragging it down into the lagoon.  He then guarded his new prize until a couple of brave keepers jumped into the enclosure to retrieve the mower and two teeth that he lost in the process!  We're happy to report that no one was hurt and Elvis is none the worse for his adventure.  His teeth are huge, with the largest measuring a whopping 9cms in length!
