VIDEO: Breakfast in bed?

The unwanted "visitor" sneaked into Whittall's room and spent the night lying quietly, just centimetres beneath the oblivious 41-year-old, according to the Daily Star website.

Whittall was only alerted to the scenario when he was enjoying breakfast in the kitchen and heard the petrified screams of a housemaid.

Whittall, a director at Humani Lodge in Zimbabwe, ran back to his room and was horrified to discover the enormous crocodile nestled under his bed.

The crocodile is believed to have come from the Turgwe River which is a couple of kilometres from the lodge.

Along with a posse of brave co-workers, Whittall evicted the crocodile from his new lair and released him into Humani's Chigwidi dam.

Whittall played 46 Tests and 147 ODIs for Zimbabwe, including three World Cups, before announcing his retirement in March 2003.
