Kota: The monsoon brings its challenges and surprises, as witnessed in a recent event in Kota, Rajasthan, where a crocodile was spotted crossing the road amidst rains.

The incident, captured in a viral tweet shared by @susantananda3, showcases the extraordinary effects of the monsoon in regions like Rajasthan, which usually experiences arid conditions.

While it may seem alarming to see a crocodile wandering onto a road, this natural phenomenon sheds light on the intricate ecological changes the monsoon brings.


The monsoon season's arrival marks the breeding season for many reptiles, including crocodiles. Due to the excessive rains, water bodies in the area swell, creating opportunities for these creatures to expand their territories and explore new habitats.

Although the sight of a crocodile crossing the road may raise eyebrows, it also serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving natural ecosystems and respecting wildlife habitats. Crocodiles play a crucial role in maintaining the balance of local ecosystems, acting as apex predators and regulating the population of smaller prey species.
