When you live in certain parts of Australia's Northern Territory, it's not uncommon to spot a crocodile every so often. What's less common however is waking up to one of the 1.7 metre dinosaur cousins guarding your toilet.

Sixteen-year-old Coralie Myers awoke to a Snapchat to end all snapchats from her housemate with the caption "When you wake up to a random crocodile in your bathroom." There's nothing more ballsy than sending Snaps when the top of the food chain has set up shop by your shower.

According to Nine News Darwin, it is currently unknown just how the crocodile ended up inside the house.

Proving yet again that the people in the north of Australia have a concept of fear that many dream about, Myers told NT Newsthat she was more concerned that someone had snuck into her house than the fact they had left her an apex predator as a present.

Crocodile ranger Tom Nichols reported to NT Newsthat the female crocodile was in bad shape after being left in the home with a tied mouth but unrestrained limbs.

Nichols enlisted the help of Myers to secure the crocodile (because two sets of croc-wrangling hands are better than one) and took the nightmare with teeth to a local croc farm for some well deserved rest and recovery time.

Local police are searching for the culprits of this stupidly dangerous prank.
