Authorities are confused after a saltwater crocodile turned up in Heidelberg Heights in Melbourne’s north last night.

Two people happened on the one-metre long croc while walking in the suburb at about 8:30pm last night.

Heidelberg Heights is 13km north-east of Melbourne, leading to questions about how the croc got there.

Police said the reptile was “sitting quietly” in the front yard of a business which was closed for Christmas on Waiora Road.
