A man in Zimbabwe woke up one morning and made a chilling discovery when he found an actual monster under the bed.
Guy Whittall, the director of the Humani Lodge in Zimbabwe, spent an entire night in 2013 just inches away from a deadly monster under the bed.
The next morning, he was alerted by the terrified screams of his housekeeper that an eight-foot-long crocodile had spent the night in his room.
His blood ran cold when he realized that not only did he sleep basically on top of the crocodile, but that he also dangled his bare feet over the edge of the bed as well:
The really disconcerting thing about the whole episode is the fact that I was sitting on the edge of the bed that morning, barefoot and just centimeters away from the croc. They often wander about the bush especially when it’s cold and raining. I think he liked it under the bed because it was warm.
After making the startling discovery, Mr. Whittall called in a team of specially trained workers to remove the crocodile from the house and return it to its home in the Turgwe River several kilometers away.
Fortunately, nobody was hurt in the encounter.
However, there is a valuable lesson to be learned here: maybe it’s not a bad idea to check and verify that there isn’t a monster under the bed before you go to sleep, especially if you’re sleeping somewhere in Africa.
