An unwelcome visitor has been caught stalking a Queensland neighbourhood at night.
Shocked neighbours came across the three-metre crocodile on a road in Port Douglas before it made its way into a front yard at 1am on Saturday.
Police were called and residents were told to stay inside.
“It got up and took itself into a front yard of a house here,” Port Douglas Police Station Sergeant Damian Meadows told the Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette.
“It was up around the door, and here and there, obviously trying to find a way out.
“I told the man to get in doors right away. Then I phoned him to tell him what was going on.”
The snappy visitor eventually disappeared into the drain system.
