Beach goers in Colombia flee as crocodile turns up to join them for fun
Beach goers in Colombia ran in terror as a huge crocodile showed up on the shore to join in the fun they were catching.
Holidaymakers were shocked when the giant reptile appeared from the bushes at Tayrona National Natural Park, in northern Colombia.
An eyewitness filmed as a group of young men, who were unaware of the toothy beast, walked straight towards it.
They eventually spotted the brazen animal and fled in panic.
Local officials reminded beachgoers the park was set up to protect wildlife, as well as for people to enjoy.
The beach was later evacuated by rangers in an attempt to keep the animal and people apart.
National park director Luz Elvira Angarita revealed it’s not unusual to see crocodiles in the area.
