Two crocodiles caught in the Tenaru River have drawn a massive crowd in Chinatown this week, sparking concerns about the abundance of the reptiles in local waterways.
The two crocs were brought into Chinatown on the back of a truck on Tuesday.
SIBC sources say the group that caught the crocs were trying to sell them off to local businesses.
A survey of the crocodile population in the Solomon Islands is currently underway, after locals in regional areas raised concerns about the increasing number of the reptiles spotted.
