Darn, I'm a bit disappointed. When i saw the thread title in the index page, it said "Giant prehistoric croc goes on...." I was thinking, what? "Goes on the rampage??" i was mildly disappointed to find that it was "on display".

What a crock! Modern crocks today are about 15'. Sometimes, however, whoppers of 20'+ show up. If the 40' specimin was of average size, then their could have been the occasional 60' whopper.
