A crocodile found in a public swimming pool in Australia has been returned to the wild.
Lifeguard Tim Dupe, 54, fished out the 50cm baby croc as oblivious swimmers lapped around it.
It is thought that the baby saltwater crocodile was put in the pool as a prank.
Ranger Tommy Nichols said it was the third crocodile to find its way into a public pool in the past couple of years.
He said: "They didn't get there by themselves. It's just a stupid thing to do.
"Certainly, a croc this size isn't going to hurt anyone, but if it was bigger it could have ended badly."
The crocodile has now been released by rangers at a secret location in the Darwin area.
