Crocodile spotted, retrieved from Isle of Palms Beach

An American crocodile (And, yes, we know the difference. It wasn't an alligator.) was spotted and retrieved from Isle of Palms Beach.

The spotting, predictably, caused minor panic. The animals inhabit only the southern tip of Florida and live in fresh water, the appearance so far north and in salt water was obviously not common.
