At least 15,000 crocodiles escaped from a South African reptile farm and fled to a nearby river during recent flooding. Thousands of the crocodiles have been recaptured -- with one turning up 75 miles from the farm -- but at least 7,500 of the beasts remain on the loose. "There used to be only a few crocodiles in the Limpopo River. ... Now there are a lot," said Zane Langman, son-in-law of the farm's owner.
