The crocodile sneaked into the Humani lodge, Zimbabwe, and spent the entire night lying quietly, below Whittall.
The following morning, Whittall even perched on the edge of his bed - unaware that the 150kg crocodile was lying just centimetres away from his dangling feet, the Daily Star reported.
The 40-year-old former all-rounder came to know about this only after he heard the petrified screams of a housemaid while he was enjoying his breakfast in the kitchen.
Whittall, a director at Humani, ran back to his room and was stunned to find the enormous crocodile nestled under his bed.
