Two residents of Melbourne's leafy Heidelberg Heights in the north-east of the city got a shock on Christmas Day when they discovered a crocodile in the front yard of a local business while on a stroll.

The closest location that a saltwater crocodile should be in relation to southeastern Melbourne is some 1,230 miles (1,976km) away in Australia's tropical north.

They say that pets are never a good idea for Christmas gifts, but this is just straight-up taking the piss.

Melbourne suburb where a saltwater crocodile was found in relation to it's natural distribution in tropical regions.

The reptile was successfully captured, but where it came from remains a mystery to police.

Now it's not every day that you get a phone call in suburban Melbourne from someone who says "there's a crocodile on the footpath", so police attending the scene expecting some very big bastard of Jurassic Park-proportions to be snapping at them when they arrived.

Officers were called to assist but turned the case over to a reptile catcher instead, ABC News reports.

"This is a phone call I've always been waiting for", he told 3AW.

'I found five police members being stared down by a decent sized crocodile, about three and a half foot, and the crocodile wouldn't back down'.

So he lunged forward to grab the creature by the tail, picked it up and put it into a box.
