We'd like to think that we know the ins and outs of our own homes pretty well. But as the following stories prove, you never know what mystical treasures you may find dwelling in your abode. And by "mystical treasures" we mean "R&B superstars" and/or "horrifying creatures waiting to feast on your flesh."
4 A Crocodile
Guy Whittall, a former cricket captain, was staying at a lodge in Zimbabwe. He had a peaceful night's rest and woke the next morning as usual. It wasn't until he had already gotten out of bed and was in the kitchen when he heard a maid scream in alarm, alerting him that something was wrong.
When he went back into the bedroom, he saw that he had an unknown bunkmate the entire night:
Successfully fueling the nightmares of little kids and one-handed pirate captains everywhere.
Yep, it was an 8-foot crocodile chilling on the tile beneath his bed. Whittall even recalled how he had spent some part of the morning sitting at the edge of the bed, dangling his feet down.
