  • 300lbs giant had sneaked into the Humani lodge, Zimbabwe
  • Spent the entire night lying quietly beneath oblivious Guy Whitall
  • Beast had managed to stay hidden for more than eight hours overnight
  • The crocodile has now been released back into the wild

It sounds like the stuff of nightmares – but Guy Whittall will certainly be checking for ‘monsters’ underneath his bed, after waking up to find an eight foot crocodile hiding just inches from where he slept.

The 330lbs giant had sneaked into the Humani lodge, Zimbabwe and spent the entire night lying quietly, just fractions beneath an oblivious Mr Whittall.

The beast – a Nile crocodile – had managed to stay hidden for more than eight hours overnight.

The following morning Mr Whittall – a former Zimbabwean cricketer –  had even perched on the edge of his bed, with his feet dangling over the edge, just inches from the crocodile’s face, as he organised his day.

But the 40-year-old remained oblivious to his uninvited guest and was only alerted when he was enjoying some breakfast in the kitchen and heard the petrified screams of a housemaid.
