Video Of The Week - Snappy, The Orange Crocodile!

By on

Word Search

Just a few weeks ago, Snappy an eight-foot long saltwater crocodile, who lives at the Roaming Reptiles center in Melbourne, Australia, used to look just like the rest of the clan - A nice dull green. So you can only imagine how horrified its owner Tracy Sandstrom was when the crocodile began to turn a bright orange!

Fortunately, it turns out that Snappy is not suffering from a rare disease, but simply from its own bad habits. Turns out that the reptile who spends nights in a heated bath, had been gnawing on the water pipes and had managed to destroy the filter.

This in turn, allowed the red algae or tannins from the dried up fallen leaves to seep into his bath water, effectively dyeing him a bright orange. Experts have assured Tracy that Snappy will eventually revert to his normal color - Meanwhile though, it sure has made him a celebrity worldwide!
