MELBOURNE, Australia - If you haven’t get a chance to see a crocodile in bright orange colour then don’t miss the opportunity as a 2.5-meter long reptile in an Australian wildlife park has turned itself orange by mistake.

The crocodile, named Snappy, entertaining the visitors at Roaming Reptiles in the State of Victoria more than normal due to its unusual orange colour. The crocodile reportedly turned orange after apparently biting off more than he could chew out of the filter in its water tank.
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.
Tracey Sandstrom, manager of Roaming Reptiles, said: "I think it caused the pH levels in his water to soar which has led to the change in colour."
Nevertheless, the new orange look has not had any health problems for Snappy and it is expected to return to his normal green colour in few days.
