Online news website Coconuts Bali reported a local lifeguard saw a dark object floating in the waves about 3pm Wednesday and thought it was a piece of wood.

But a closer look revealed it was actually a crocodile, estimated to be three metres long.

A spokesperson for the lifeguard branch, Badung Balawista, told Coconuts Bali the crocodile likely escaped from captivity with the help of recent strong winds.

Wayan Suyadnya added: “Ever since I joined Badung Balawista in 2005, this was the first time I saw a crocodile on the beach. Even my seniors at Balawista never saw anything like it.”

A witness told the outlet lifeguards immediately blew their whistles to warn swimmers once the creature was spotted.

A video of the rare sighting made quite the splash on the Facebook page, Bali Bogans, attracting nearly 2,000 comments.

One person wrote: “Not that far from Australia. Have always said to my wife, ‘can’t believe you don’t get crocs in Bali’. You do!”

Another comment read: “Safe to say I won’t be swimming in the ocean anytime soon!”

Many people expressed sympathy for the croc and wondered what would be done with the body.
