Pest controller Steve North discovered the killer beast while on a routine call advertising the local council's services.
A resident invited him in and sid he had a 'problem' in his bathroom and asked Steve to take a look at it.
Steve said: "I followed him in. What I didn't expect was to be eyeballed by a 2ft long crocodile, happily lounging in the bath."
The man, a tenant who was renting the flat, said he was looking after the crocodile for a friend.
A team of animal control experts had to be brought in to remove the crocodile and take it away.
