Monster Crocodile

 

Wildlife authorities in the Philippines have captured a 21-foot-long, 2,370-pound saltwater crocodile, thought to be the largest creature of its kind now in captivity.

The croc was captured in Agusan del Sur marsh on the southern Philippine island of Mindinao.  Hunters had been trying to capture it for 21 days, using meat as bait and an 8 mm cable to snare it.

Edwin Cox Elorde, mayor of the remote town of  Bunawan near where the croc was caught, said the reptile will become the star of a nature park there.

They believe that an even bigger crocodile is still at large in the same area.

The previous largest crocodile in captivity is an 18-footer in Australia, according to Guinness World Records.
