Warning signs up for Oz tourists after crocodile sighting

Warning signs have been put up around an Australian lake to warn tourists about the presence of a crocodile - but if you're heading to the country in the near future, don't worry - it turns out it is made of plastic.

The Border Mail reports that dozens of tourists had done a "double take" when they saw the 'reptile' bobbing in the waters of Lake Hume, in the town of Tallangatta.

No doubt the safety signs will have done little to calm their fears.

Stan Mudford, whose house backs onto the lake, told the newspaper some people had even dived into the water to get a closer look at the croc, with some even brave enough to pose for a photo - clearly ignoring the warning signs.

"A couple of fellows pulled up a few days ago and one jumped in, swam out and pretended to be attacked by it while his mate took some photos," he said.

But concerned residents and tourists need not be overly worried - the crocodile is made of plastic.

"I believe it was deposited there with the help of a boat," Mr Mudford told the newspaper.

Last year, motorists crossing a bridge in Wigan were surprised to see warning signs urging them to keep an eye out for a triceratops.
