In this segment, we like stories which have a lesson to them and this story has at least two.

It comes to us from a wild animal park in Australia. That's where a member of the staff learned the first lesson: don't mow
near the croc's pond.

Actually, "Elvis" the crocodile had lunged at a keeper and the mower was the only thing keeping the croc at bay but, once he had the lawnmower, Elvis kept his new toy with him most of the morning.

Eventually more keepers showed up to lure Elvis away with some food while another waded into the croc pond to retrieve the mower.

Two of Elvis's teeth were found underwater proving that even for a crocodile, you can bite off more than you can chew.
