In a viral video capturing the aftermath of Cyclone Michuang in Chennai, severe waterlogging led to an unusual sight—a mugger crocodile navigating flooded streets.
The footage shows the reptile crossing a road while commuters cautiously pass by. Heavy rains caused low-lying areas to flood, prompting the appearance of crocodiles on the road.
Tamil Nadu Forest Secretary, Supriya Sahu, assured the public that the wildlife division is vigilant to prevent any incidents.
Sahu emphasized that leaving the crocodiles unprovoked poses no threat to humans. The unexpected encounter highlights the challenges faced by Chennai residents during extreme weather events.
