A curious crocodile sent some Brooklyn residents scrambling indoors on Monday.

The 28 inch crocodile, which is about a year old, was found crawling through a backyard on Jefferson Street in the Bushwick section.

The crocodile is now at an animal care and control shelter in Brooklyn.

It will not be released into the wild; instead, it will be set free in a special habitat area.
