Red flags have been put up on Nai Harn and Yanui beaches to warn visitors about a crocodile in the water.
Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos have been patrolling the southern beaches trying to locate the crocodile that was first reported yesterday morning by a fisherman.
Aroon said: “The crocodile has been spotted lying on Nai Harn Beach about three times. Every time someone spots it and tries to get closer for a photo, it scampers into the sea.
“Last night the crocodile was spotted lying on a rock in front of a hotel at Nai Harn Beach.”
