ZIMBABWE –A 40-year-old man in Zimbabwe woke up to find an 8-foot, 300-pound crocodile under his bed. Guy Whittall said he slept all night just inches from the reptilian beast.

It sounds like the nightmare that strikes fear into every child’s heart–monsters under the bed.

He said he even sat on the edge of his bed with his feet hanging down while the crocodile hid under his bed.

Whittall said he went about his morning routine and didn’t even notice the animal lurking until he was enjoying breakfast in the kitchen and heard the terrified screams from the house keeper.
