Next They’ll Be Banning Snakes On Planes

European low-cost airline Ryanair has a pretty good reputation for being friendly and laidback, but the inflight latitude doesn’t stretch to allowing a metre-long fluffy (and inanimate) crocodile to sit beside the emergency exit door. A passenger on a recent flight from Rome to Milan was asked to leave the flight when her plush reptilian pal became the subject of a heated debate between her and the flight crew.

In other crocodile-related world news, a crocodile which escaped from a circus in the Ukraine was finally captured after six months on the run.

There’s no truth to the rumour he was on his way to the Ryanair counter at Kiev airport.
