Crocodile managed to scale a 4ft fence – before diving down into a lake in India

Crocodile managed to scale a 4ft fence - before diving down into a lake in India.

One particular croc managed to scale a 4ft fence, before gracefully (sort of) diving down into a lake.

Photographer Ram Kishan saw her casually climbing the metal fence in Boondi in Rajasthan, northern India.

The 30-year-old didn’t have his camera on him, but he managed to take a few photos on his smartphone.

‘I arrived at the spot late in the evening and there was this crocodile,’ he said. ‘I clicked one photograph just like that, but when I noticed that it was moving towards the lake, I stayed back to see what would happen.

‘The light was very low so I could only capture a few images. I really missed my camera at that moment.’

The massive predator scaled the metal barrier with ease before plunging four metres down into the water below in the Boondi district of Rajasthan

People living nearby told Ram the croc had been hanging out on land near the lake for a few days, and that it looked like she was searching for a safe place to lay eggs.

Apparently, the 250lb croc is actually an expecting mother.
