At roughly three and a half feet in length, the crocodile is now under the police's protective care.

Crocodile sightings and discoveries are not uncommon in Maldives. Recently, a four-foot crocodile was found dead on the island of Vaikaradhoo, Haa Dhaalu Atoll.

So far, there is no recorded evidence of any incidents or injury caused by a crocodile.
