Get out of bed, and make it snappy! Man finds 8ft crocodile under his BED which hid there for eight hours

The huge 330lb beast spent the entire night lying quietly under Guy Whittall's bed, as he slept blissfully unaware just centimetres away

A terrified homeowner got the shock of his life when he woke up to find an 8ft crocodile hiding under his bed.

The huge 330lb beast spent the entire night lying quietly under Guy Whittall's bed, as he slept blissfully unaware just centimetres away

The giant croc stayed hidden for eight hours until the following morning - when Guy even perched on the edge of his bed as the deadly creature lay fractions away from his dangling feet.

Guy, 40, was only alerted to the bizarre scene at Humani Lodge in Zimbabwe, when he was enjoying some breakfast in the kitchen and heard the petrified screams of a housemaid. Guy, who is a director at Humani, ran back to his room and was horrified to discover the enormous crocodile nestled under his bed. Guy said: 'The really disconcerting thing about the whole episode is the fact that I was sitting on the edge of the bed that morning, bare foot and just centimetres away from the croc. 'Crocodiles are experts at hiding, that's why they have survived on Earth for so long and why they are the ultimate killers in water.

'They know how to keep quiet and go unnoticed, it's in their nature.

'The crocodile came from the Turgwe River which is a couple of kilometres from the house. 'They often wander about the bush especially when it's cold and raining. I think he liked it under the bed because it was warm.' Guy was forced to call in some of his co-workers who helped remove the crocodile from its new lair and release him back into Humani's Chigwidi dam. Guy said: 'Of course he resisted being roped and hauled out from under the bed, that's only natural. 'Catching and securing a croc of any size on land though is a fairly straightforward affair and we are experienced in that.

'The only real danger is getting bitten because it can't drown you. 'The most important thing is to get its snout roped and secured and then it's just a matter of restraining it and covering its eyes, to calm it down. 'Bigger crocs require more manpower obviously though. When roped they thrash around frantically and are extremely powerful. 'I just remember thinking goodness gracious, that's one for the books. 'I'm pretty sure everyone in Humani checks under their bed before going to sleep now anyway.'

When I read the title "Man Discovers 8ft Crocodile" It sounded like he had been searching under his bed for decades until he finally discovered the 8ft crocodile he had been searching for all those years.

The title makes it sound like a crocodile is a new species of animal.

@king_saturn: haha right. How did a croc get into his house into his room without anyone seeing anything.

@ximpossibrux: Even if it did attack him. Probably wouldn't of killed him, most likely would've injured him, but it's still possible it could kill him even out of the water. Most Crocodile attacks on Humans are in the water and they do it by drowning you. That and this was a somewhat small Croc.

@the_titan_lord: It's in a Crocodile's nature to be quiet. Considering the fact they are ambush predators. They're experts at hiding.

@cameron83: Hehe aw thanks, that's such a nice thing to say ^___^

To be honest, I learned it all from my dad. Best evil parenting ever. Example:

"If the ice cream van is playing the song, thats to let you know they are out of ice cream"

Believed him for years.
