CANCUN — A baby crocodile was found dead on Boulevard Kukulcan at kilometer 25 this week.
Apparently the reptile had left its habitat and was walking on the busy route when it was run over by vehicles traveling along this road.
Meanwhile, just last Friday, a larger crocodile was found dead near the Royalton hotel, located at kilometer 322 of the federal highway Cancun-Tulum.
This specimen measured just over a meter long and was found lying in the weeds with a badly injured body.
On June 9, a reptile one-and-and-a-half meters long caused alarm among tourists when it was seen walking at dawn at kilometer 10 of the Hotel Zone.
The creature was secured and transferred to firefighters and taken to kilometer 16.5, where it was released in the lagoon.
Cancun has five points where sighting crocodiles and contact between them and people are common: the Nichupte Lagoon, in the hotel zone; Tajamar Malecón, on Bonampak Avenue; Lombardo Toledano colonias and the Donceles 28; plus a portion opposite the University of the Caribbean.
So far this administration has rescued 26 reptiles in coordination with Fire and Civil Protection.
