Angel Breytenbach from North West woke up to a surprise on Friday when she found a crocodile in her pool.
According to Breytenbach, she checked her security cameras before letting her pets out when she found the croc had made itself comfortable in her pool.
She wrote on Facebook: “This morning I decided to check my cameras before going out to let the animals out and this happened, only in South Africa hey.”
The crocodile was safely removed from her pool.
According to her comments on social media, it is believed that the crocodile came from a nearby river, as the province had experienced increased rainfall due to storm Eloise.

According to the South African Weather Service (SAWS), the province will continue to receive a plenty of rainfall, resulting in flooding of low-lying areas.
“Flash flooding of low-lying roads and settlements [formal and informal], especially. Reduced visibility is expected due to the heavy downpours, slippery roads and possible major disruption of traffic flows due to flooded and damaged roads ,as well as difficult driving conditions.
“Disruption to essential services is also possible as well as danger to life due to fast-flowing streams,” said the SAWS of Potchefstroom and Mahikeng on Wednesday.
