Police raids in Sydney have turned up millions of dollars in drugs and cash - and a crocodile.

In coordinated operations in three different suburbs in the city's northwest, drug squad detectives seized an infant crocodile, as well as methamphetamine worth $A2.85 million, a taser and firearm and $A300,000 in cash.

The reptile has been taken to a wildlife park and a man charged with possession of protected fauna, as well as counts of supplying drugs, AAP reports.

Two other men have been charged with drug supply.
