Baby croc settles in at Botanical Gardens
Johannesburg - A baby crocodile has settled in at the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens in Roodepoort, west of Johannesburg, according to a report on Friday.
The crocodile has been spotted on a sandbank at the waterfall's pool, traditionally a play area for children visiting the gardens over weekends.
It is only 80cm long, but staff told Beeld newspaper it would still cause serious injury if it bit anyone.
A picture of the crocodile has been doing the rounds and a Facebook group for the botanical gardens is discussing names for him, including "Walt, "Kwena", "Teardrop" and "Sisi".
Meanwhile, a sign has been put up at the waterfall, warning people not to go near the pool for their own safety.
