LOCAL fishermen in Labutta Township, Ayeyawady Region, caught a rare female crocodile on Saturday morning.
The group of 10 fisherman led by U Tun Naing found the crocodile on the bank of the Paymalaw River while they fished on a sandbank near Dawkanyone Island in Kyanchaung Village in the township.
“We captured the amphibious animals with a fishing net and carried it on our fishing vessel to send it to the township fisheries department,” said one of the fishermen.
A member of fisheries department said the crocodile will soon be sent to a breeding camp in Thaketa Township, Yangon, via Labutta.
