Thai authorities were hunting on Monday for a runaway crocodile from a local zoo, one of three that escaped during heavy flooding in the country's south, a veterinary official is reported by AFP as saying.

Two have already been caught -- one by officials and another by villagers -- after they escaped in Nakhon Si Thammarat province which has been hard hit by recent downpours, zoo veterinarian Nopparat Inthongkam said.

He said local authorities had teamed up to catch the last reptile and to keep watch at the zoo in Nakhon Si Thammarat town, inundated by more than a meter (three feet) of floodwater.

Serious floods in the region have killed four people and affected tens of thousands more, causing about $10 million of damage, officials said.

Emergency disaster zones have been declared in 34 districts across five provinces since heavy downpours began on Wednesday.
