PHUKET: The Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation confirmed yesterday (Sept 8) that they had sent a blood sample for the crocodile recently captured in the Bang tao area for DNA testing.

 

(See original story here).

 

It is hope the test results will be returned in two weeks and will determine which species the crocodile belongs to. So far officials have had difficulty determining the species through physical examinations of the crocodile (see story here and here).
