A two metre crocodile has been caught in a mangrove forest in Klongtom, Krabi whilst another crocodile was sighted last night.

Officials from the Krabi Provincial Fisheries Office arrived at the area after being notified by locals that a crocodile has been caught. The crocodile was 1.8 metres and 30 kilograms, female and in good health.

36 year old Noppohn Suparp says, “Last night my friends and I went to search for shrimps in a local mangrove forest. We were very shocked after we saw the reptile’s eyes in the water.”

“We realised that it was a crocodile. It took about three hours for four of us to catch it. We brought the crocodile to my house and informed the villager headman.” (“Mum, hope you don’t mind, we brought a crocodile home!”)

The crocodile has now been taken to the Research and Development Centre in Nakhon Si Thammarat.

Fifteen students and three adults have been injured after a cold-storage truck collided with a song-taew bus on a Phatthalung road this morning, south of Krabi province.

The injured were taken to Phatthalung Hospital following the 7am incident at a curve on the Asia Highway in Moo 3, Tambon Tha Kae, in Muang district.

There was high drama at the hospital with the students crying and hospital staff rushing to treat them. Police said three of the students had been critically injured.

The bus was already full with students heading to school when it stopped at the curve to pick up another passenger. Police say the six-wheel truck rear-ended it as the driver pulled onto the road, causing both vehicles to fall to the roadside.
