Chennai Residents Witness Crocodile Crossing Roads Amidst Cyclone Michaung
In a startling incident amidst the ongoing chaos of Cyclone Michaung in Chennai, residents of Perungalathur were taken aback by the sight of a mugger crocodile navigating the flooded streets. A video, which rapidly spread across social media platforms, captured the unexpected visitor casually crossing the road before vanishing into the nearby bushes.
The dramatic footage, recorded by a commuter from the safety of their car, illustrates the crocodile’s unhurried journey across the waterlogged street. The presence of the reptile also caused a moment of caution among two bikers, who are seen slowing down their vehicle upon encountering the crocodile.
Tweeting about the incident, Tamil Nadu Additional Chief Secretary, Environment, Climate Change and Forests, Supriya Sahu said, Many are tweeting about this video.There are a few mugger crocodiles in several of the water bodies in Chennai. These are shy elusive animals and avoid human contact. This one has come out as the water has overflown due to massive rains under the impact of #CycloneMichuang please do not go close to water bodies. There is no possibility of harm to humans IF these animals are left alone & UNPROVOKED. No need to panic. Wildlife division has been alerted and they are on the job to avoid any untoward incident #cyclonemichaung #Cyclone #Michaung #ChennaiRains.” - TWL Bureau
