Killer Croc breaks record as the largest

37 posts in this topic

A seven metre-long crocodile has been confirmed as the largest in captivity.

Lolong weighs more than a ton, and has taken the top spot from an Australian crocodile which measured more than five metres, a Guinness World Records spokesman said.

The giant reptile has been blamed for a number of deadly attacks in a remote area in the southern Philippines and was eventually caught in the remote town of Bunawan.

It is delicious.

In the article:

"He said he saw a larger crocodile escape when Lolong was captured, and villagers remain wary of fishing there at night. Another team of hunters has been formed and he is seeking government permission to start hunting for the escaped crocodile."

I'm sure it's edible. Cajuns in the swamps of Loiusianna eat gator. The tail is the best part.

but you want to trim the fat off or it will make the meat taste horrible. Native Americans used

gator fat to repel mosquitos.

Take that Australia! Seriously, salt-water crocs are monsters, I can not imagine what this one looked like in its habitat.
