After awhile, crocodiles stop being fun to have as pets.

That's what one unidentified Toronto man discovered after he begged a local large reptile sanctuary to help remove some 150 alligators, crocodiles and caimans from his premises.

That's right. There were 150 of them. In Toronto, Canada.

The reptiles, some more than three metres long, had been kept in a home for about 10 years before Bry Loyst of the Indian River Reptile Zoo near Peterborough, Ont., was called in to help.

"I couldn't believe what I was seeing," Loyst said Thursday on CBC Radio's Metro Morning show. "I could not believe that somebody had that many crocodilians and raised them to adulthood. These were not baby little crocodiles," he said. "They were adults."

Even though that sanctuary wrangler would not give up the location of the house that kept such a large number of Captain Hook's nemeses, he did say it was in a residential part of the city and the crocs and gators were kept in aquariums.

So, you know. Real good neighbor-type.

Here's some CBC News footage of Loyst and crew collecting the reptiles:

The incident was captured on camera by author Tiffany Corlis at Lake Moondarra in Queensland, Australia. The snake - thought to be python measuring around 10ft - constricted the crocodile to death, before dragging it to shore and eating it.
