KUANTAN: A large crocodile was spotted at a flooded road at Kampung Seri Damai here on Monday, according to a video which has gone viral on social media.

The 30-second footage, which was shot by a car passenger, shows the large reptile wading through the flooded road.

The video was uploaded by Pulau Manis assemblyman Mohammad Rafiq Khan Ahmad Khan on Facebook.

“I received messages of a video of a crocodile from Sungai Belat in Jalan Air Hitam near Jalan Kuantan-Pekan,” he said.
