What can you find in a parking lot?

For a country like Japan, it is bizarre to find animals even near to the city. However recent finding of a crocodile measuring around 43 centimeters in length that was captured in a parking lot of a hospital in Nagoya's Chikusa Ward Saturday evening was definitely a breaking news for all Japanese.

The lost reptile was found by a nurse at around 6:30 p.m. and was caught with a net by security guards of Aichi Prefectural Shiroyama Hospital, and was handed over to police.

According the report given by police, the creature looks like a Siamese crocodile that can grow up to 3 meters and is believed either to have escaped from or been released by someone who was raising it as a pet. The hospital is located in a residential area. Police are planning to look for a zoo that may be interested in taking care of it.

So what you expect to find in your parking lot?
