Giant Crocodile Slides Into South African Family's Swimming Pool

A crocodile sneaked into a South African family’s property for a swim in Moedwil, during the early morning hours of January 29.

Jacob Breytenbach’s home surveillance camera recorded a video that shows a massive crocodile chilling out in his swimming pool.

Breytenbach’s wife, Angel Breytenbach, told Storyful that the animal was from a river that was roughly two kilometers away.

“Tracing back on my CCTV, she had arrived at 1:53 am and seem to have enjoyed her swim. We found tracks to the front corner of the property,” Angel Breytenbach said.

The crocodile was safely removed and sent to an animal sanctuary in the morning. Credit: Jacob Breytenbach via Storyful
