Officials from the Krabi Provincial Fisheries Office arrived at the area after being notified by locals that a crocodile had been caught. 
The crocodile, a female measuring 1.8 metres and weighing 30 kilograms, was in good health.
Noppohn Suparp, 36, said on Monday: “Last night my friends and I went to search for shrimps in a local mangrove forest. We were very shocked after we saw the reptile’s eyes in the water.

“We realised that it was a crocodile. It took about three hours for four of us to catch it. We brought the crocodile to my house and informed the village headman.” (“Mum, hope you don’t mind, we brought a crocodile home!”)
The crocodile has now been taken to the Research and Development Centre in Nakhon Si Thammarat.
