LIMPOPO PROVINCE, SOUTH AFRICA -- If you like to work nights and aren't afraid of having your ankles nipped by pesky reptiles, this job is for you.

And the reason Croc-hunters are needed? Because thousands of crocodiles escaped from a breeding farm along a flooded river on the South Africa-Botswana border.

Somewhere between seven-thousand and thirteen-thousand corcodiles are out there...just hanging out.

Police are now making appeals --and we quote--- "who has knowledge of catching crocodiles to come and assist."

Some of the reptiles could be up to 16 feet long.

The crock-farm's owners could face charges...since they opened the flood gates and released all the animals.
