A young crocodile has been returned to a mobile wildlife zoo after being found sunning itself on a riverbank in Sydney's south by a family on an Easter Sunday stroll.

The croc captured measured about 80cm long.

'We had to take a double-take.

Speaking to ABC Radio Mr Hughes said he took some inspiration from Steve Irwin during the rescue.

Aaron Hughes told the publication he initially thought his eyes were playing tricks on him when he spotted the crocodile among a group of rocks.

He said there had been some sightings in the Georges River since they had gone missing from the park, which is a couple of suburbs away from where the Hughes family lives at Peakhurst.

McMaster: North Korea's provocations 'can't continue'
His visit comes amid escalated tensions on the peninsula, with heated rhetoric from both North Korea and the US. US Vice-President Mike Pence has said his country's "era of strategic patience" with North Korea is over.

"Basically it did look a bit malnourished and we weren't sure what to do".

'It had been a bit of a running joke around the streets and with my friends that those crocs were going to be turning up in a few years being two metres or three metres long, ' Mr Hughes said.

"As we've all done, we've seen Steve Irwin the crocodile hunter and we were well versed in maybe coming up behind it and grabbing it as it wasn't moving too quickly."

The baby croc was found at Salt Pan Creek on Sunday.

The reptile measures 80cm long.

Grave concerns were held for the crocs, reportedly named Snap and Crackle, in the chilly Sydney conditions.

It turns out, the crocodile is believed to be one of two juvenile freshwater crocodiles which were stolen from Get Wild Animal Experiences, a petting zoo in the city's south-west.

"We think we managed to get hold of Snap because he did have a few goes when we were bringing him up to put him in the bath, so there is one still out there", Mr Hughes said.

"We are beyond happy and would like to thank Aaron who contacted us and Kogarah Police for assisting in this matter".

"He is very cold, thin and lethargic but we are hoping with some TLC he will be back to normal in no time".
