What a croc! 20-ft man-eating monster steals records, hearts7/2/2012
An alleged man-eating crocodile, captured last year and now living in a wildlife park in Bunawan, the Philippines, has just been acknowledged by Guinness World Records as the largest saltwater crocodile living in captivity. At 20.24 feet from the tip of his tail to the end of his deadly, fetid-breathed snout, and weighing more than a ton, the extremely large "Lolong" has chewed up the previous record held by an Australian "salty" by three feet. The monster was suspected to have eaten two people, including a young child. After a years-long search, it took 100 people using steel cable and a crane to bring it in. However, the local mayor is convinced he saw an even larger crocodile slink away during Lolong's capture and is seeking permission to hunt it down too.
Would you have helped capture Lolong?
