Much like King Arthur’s removal of Excalibur from the stone earned him the kingdom of Britain, your removal of the tire from a crocodile’s neck will earn you … an unspecified reward from the Indonesian government. According to Insider, the 13-foot crocodile has been sighted around Indonesia’s Palu River sporting the ugly, uncomfortable rubber necklace since at least 2016. Since the motorcycle tire could soon constrict the airways of the growing reptile, Central Sulawesi’s Natural Resources Conservation Office is offering a prize to persuade people to release it—though the prize itself remains a mystery.
