A section of the Reptile House roof at Dudley Zoo blew off on Friday night and exposed a female West African dwarf crocodile to the elements.
High winds lifted the panel above Janet the crocodile's vivarium and keepers were forced to secure the roof.
Jill Hitchman, from Dudley Zoo, said: "There was absolutely no risk of Janet escaping as she is within a secure enclosure inside the building, and spot heaters in the vivarium ensured there was no problem with temperatures falling."
"Everyone was surprised to see the section off, but the winds were very strong on the hill on Friday and just caught the side of the Reptile House which is on the turn of road leading up to the castle."
