A London city worker took a photo of what appeared to be a crocodile on Tuesday. The monstrous reptile was snapped by a man named Ben, who took a break from his Canary Wharf office job for a lunchtime stroll with a colleague.
While wandering around the Isle of Dogs, Ben and his friend made the disturbing discovery.
Ben said: "I was out for a stroll on my lunch break today with a colleague and taking our usual route around the docks enjoying the sun.
"While circumnavigating Millwall Outer Dock we passed the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre, when to our horror we spotted what appears to be some sort of large reptile.
"My colleague thought it might be a dinosaur but I corrected him that it looked more like a crocodile."
However the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre later revealed that the potentially deadly brute was merely a pile of old rope.
