The devastating floods that have hit the region, particularly Maoming, have claimed the lives of seven people. Moreover, these fierce reptiles are now navigating the inundated streets, posing an additional threat.

According to reports, six young crocodiles and 69 adult crocodiles were able to flee during the mayhem caused by Typhoon Haikui's remnants. While some have been recovered, others are elusive and submerged in a lake's bottom, making retrieval a difficult task.

The situation has been exacerbated further by over 100 landslides, which have trapped thousands of residents in rising floodwaters, adding to the urgency of rescue efforts.

Fortunately, there have been no reported injuries caused by the crocodiles thus far. However, the toll from the floods continues to rise, with seven casualties and numerous individuals missing due to landslides.
