During the floods brought about by the typhoon Ondoy in the Phillipines, 6 crocodiles, captive in the small zoo of Rainforest Park, allegedly escaped from their pens. Some snakes were said to have escaped too. One of the crocodiles was reported to be spotted in Green Park Village in Cainta. Please be careful out there.

Oh my gosh! That's freaky! So meaning, while people were wading through the flood, there were already crocodiles swimming with them? That's really freaky!

Yeah, and think about the snakes that were also on the loose too! It gives me the goosebumps. I have no liking whatsoever to crocodiles and snakes alike, and knowing they're out there on the loose, I'd definitely die if I was there.

Well,the news now says that all crocs are now accounted for. All crocodiles that was reported to have escaped are now in their cages. But I don't trust that news outright. I'm still watching my sewers. LOL

Oh no! Really! I'm scared now.. I'm from Pasig..although Rainforest is quite far frm our dwelling I don't want some crocodiles strolling around the city!LOL.. and snakes too. I hope Pasig Rescue Team must take an action because there are still some flooded places here in Pasig. :( Well, we need to be careful and pray that it won't hurt anyone. (crossed fingers) Thanks.

Yeah, I'm from Pasig too. Got scared a little when the news broke out. I wonder if it's true that they have already caught all of the escaped crocs. I'm still wary to get near the sewer gutters. I recently went to Marikina and I see a much greater threat. Trash. A lot of trash has been left on the sidestreets and it needs to be picked up. It's already started to emit a terrible smell and flies are already making a feast on them. A lot of them are infront of the open area at SM Marikina. It's kinda weird and tragic seeing the barges of the riverbanks swept up on the sidestreets. Anyway, hope all is well in your place. Cheers!

Yeah, I see what you mean. It's kinda funny, we didn't imagine that we had so many trash in our house til the floods came in. I think it's one trucks full. LOL

Oh boy, that's terrible... We all know that crocodiles is the most always hungry creatures on earth when they saw a fresh meat... The Phillipines government must put a serious attentions on that situations... Catch them before somebody becomes prey.

Local news said that all of the crocs have been captured...or so they say. I wonder if that is 100% true. I know crocs can swim fast in the water and can submerge themselves to avoid detection. I just hope that what they said was true for our safety's sake. LOL

Wow! these 6 crocodiles will have a easy thoroughfare through out that flooded region, full of human fleshes and animal meats conveniently placed there for them, they will have no problem taking care of their hunger now after being held captive for so long, the time has come for them to turn the table. lol!!!

I saw that in the news last night... and i was very afraid for the people in that area... to think that they already lost everything... then they still have to worry about a crocodile on the lose... i hope it gets caught really soon... we all know that crocodiles eat people without mercy... so it will surely be another cause to the suffering of those devastated by typhoon ondoy...

Yes, I heard this on the radio, too! Scary, if you ask me. But basing on what I heard, this could be a publicity stunt, as well as a way for other people to take advantage of those who have already been victimized by the typhoon. Stupid, cruel, and heartless at the same time.
