Crocodile turns himself orange
Crocodile turns himself orange, A crocodile at a wildlife park in Australia has turned himself orange after attacking a water filter in the pool in his enclosure.The reptile, named Snappy, obviously bit off more than he could chew - although he is expected to return to normal at some point.

The 2.5m-long animal is now bright orange from head to tail - much to the amusement of onlookers at Roaming Reptiles in the State of Victoria.

Experts believe vegetation and algae which would normally have stayed out of his water thanks to the filter managed to get in, which affected his colour.

"I think it caused the pH levels in his water to soar which has led to the change in colour," zoo manager Tracey Sandstrom told news.com.au .

"Snappy is pretty territorial and he attacked the filter one day and a few weeks after that, I noticed he was orange."

However, the new look has not had any health implications - and Snappy is expected to return to his normal green colour in time.
