On Tuesday, March 26, social media users announced the presence of a crocodile in the vicinity of the Progreso Sports Unit, a place frequented every day by hundreds of people, from children, young people, and even adults.

According to reports, the reptile appeared on the side of one of the columns at the entrance, right on the side of 46th Street that borders this place.

It is unknown if he remained in the area or if he went to another area such as El Corchito, which is located in front of Deportivo.

During a tour carried out on Wednesday, March 27. it was found that traces indicate the path the croc would have taken in the area where the photograph was taken, and now it has gone viral on social networks.

Likewise, it was seen that there is a space that leads to a much larger area that ends up surrounding the Sports Unit.

It even connects with the mangrove area where the well-known “Huancho” appears, a crocodile that was last seen last January on 37th Street between 46th Street in the port.

It is unknown for now if it could be the same specimen that was roaming the night before.

The recent appearance attracted a lot of attention from Internet users because the Sports Unit is quite busy every day with people who come to practice some sport or walk around the perimeter on 46th Street, precisely where the specimen emerged.

In addition to the fauna such as fish and birds of different species that live there, a possible source of food for any animals, under the bridge that was the old entrance to the Unit, fish heads and bones can be observed at that site.

Although at the moment the Ecological Police has not commented on the situation, the director of the corporation, Obdulio Mena Sánchez, said that in the specific case of “Huancho,” they would monitor it and develop a plan to move it to a safe environment to minimize the risks both for the reptile and the people of Progreso.

The recommendation made at the time to citizens in general does not lose validity: “You must avoid disturbing these animals, do not approach them or try to grab them. Let’s remember that we are in their habitat, just keep away and call 911” Mena Sánchez said.
