Crocodile at spare parts shop, released to the wild

Wildlife authorities have released a crocodile that had paid an unexpected visit to a vehicle spare parts outlet in the Kaithady area in Jaffna.
The 8-ft long creature had been hiding before being spotted. It was later released to the Pulikulam Tank in Kilinochchi.
Wildlife officers say the prevailing hot weather has resulted in low water levels in Tanks around the region and as a result, crocodiles are roaming in search of water.
