 British Man Shares Suburban Home With Crocodile For Last 6 Years

For the last 6-years, a British man has been living with a crocodile in his house.

Chris Weller has been referred to as the British Steve Irwin, as he has spent more than 25,000 pounds in making his home crocodile-friendly for seven-year-old Caesar, the Daily Star reported.

The 66-year old former prison officer from Rochester enjoys his retirement with his five-and-a-half foot companion, who he bought six years ago when he was less than a foot long, and they watch TV together and listen to Classic FM.

Weller converted the downstairs of his detached bungalow in suburban Kent into a habitat, including building a pool into his conservatory, for the crocodile to roam in and revealed that Caesar is his "closest companion" and most of his day revolves around feeding, cleaning and entertaining him.
