Passengers got something of a shock as they saw a 7ft crocodile being carried through the arrivals area at Heathrow Airport.
The crocodile was found living in unsuitable conditions in a greenhouse in Sweden, and has been given an new home at the Crocodiles of the World Zoo tourist attraction in Brize Norton, Oxfordshire, reports the BBC.
The two-metre Nile crocodile is called Kajsa. The owner of Britain's only crocodile attraction, Shaun Foggett, told the Oxford Mail: "We were able to take the animal on and Kajsa can join the group once our other crocodiles get to a similar size.
"Until that time, the crocodile will remain in quarantine. Kajsa is two metres long, which is small for a Nile crocodile."
Shocked passengers reportedly took pictures and videos of the strange scene.
According to the Daily Mail, Shaun's crocodile attraction has 80 of the animals, as well as alligators from 13 different species, lizards, iguanas, turtles, tortoises and fish.
