Baby crocodile surprises swimmers at pool

Last updated at 10:48

Swimmers in Australia got a surprise when a baby croc turned up in their local swimming pool.

The little reptile was lying in the shallow end of the pool as early morning visitors splashed away. But luckily no-one was swimming in the same lane as the snapper.

Once it was spotted, the 40cm long croc was removed from the pool by a lifeguard.

No-one was hurt, but it's not clear how it got there in the first place.

Visitors to the pool said the reptile was only small and probably pretty scared itself.
