Crocodile turns orangeThe 2.5m-long animal is now bright orange from head to tail - much to the amusement of onlookers at Roaming Reptiles in the State of Victoria.
Experts believe vegetation and algae which would normally have stayed out of his water thanks to the filter managed to get in, which affected his colour.
"I think it caused the pH levels in his water to soar which has led to the change in colour," zoo manager Tracey Sandstrom told news.com.au. Crocodile turns orange
"Snappy is pretty territorial and he attacked the filter one day and a few weeks after that, I noticed he was orange."
