Pictured: The crocodile at the man-made Potamon lake and dam near the town of Rethymnon in Crete, Greece. <br />
Re: A Greek reptile expert on Friday began an operation to trap a two-metre long crocodile that mysteriously appeared in a man-made lake and dam on the tourist island of Crete last weekend.<br />
"We are placing our hopes on the crocodile's hunger," herpetologist Petros Liberakis, who works at the island's natural history museum, told Skai TV.<br />
"The operation could take two days, or a couple of weeks, or it could fail altogether," he said.<br />
Cages laden with meat will be placed near the artificial dam, some 15 kilometres (9.3 miles) from the city of Rethymno.<br />
Crews had previously fenced off a one-kilometre stretch of coast around the lake to keep curious visitors away.
