Sarah, a 22-year-old from Brisbane, and a group of her friends, headed out to Australia Zoo on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast last Saturday.
“Basically me and a group of friends all planned to go to the zoo together, I was hype for the otters,” Sarah told BuzzFeed News.
When Sarah and her friends got to the gift shop, they found this very special guy.
“At the end of the day, buying plushies from the gift shop, one of my friends pointed out the derpy crocs and we all cracked up for a solid 10 minutes at them,” she said.
“There were hundreds and they all looked as derpy as the next, and I swear like six or seven of us got one.”
Sarah tweeted out photos of the crocodile on Monday…
And people absolutely lost it.
This guy thought it looked like his little brother.
Some people are saying the croc is just doing its best.
And it turns out that the croc is not the only slightly special animal figurine out there.
The croc is now being immortalised in art.
Sarah’s cat Ned also loves the croc.
The croc squeaks, which cats are into.
So far, Sarah’s crocodile tweets have almost 7,000 retweets and over 30,000 likes. That’s obviously because of the deeply heartwarming nature of the croc…
Sarah and her friends love their crocs and had a group phone call on Monday evening. “We were all laughing at the post blowing up, and squeaking our crocs,” she said.
“He is truly beautiful, that’s for sure,” Sarah said. “Living icon.”
