Giant Crocodile Captured In The Philippines
Over the weekend, a crocodile hunter and some local villagers in the Philippines managed to catch a massive croc. How massive? The beast weighs in at 2375 pounds (1077 kilograms) and is 21 feet (6.4 meters) in length! The crocodile is believed to have eaten water buffalo from the local area and may be responsible for a missing fisherman as well. The creature was captured alive and will now be taken to a local ecotourism camp where he'll become a big star I'm sure.
Oh, and the same croc hunter that captured this dinosaur is hot on the trail of another one, that is believed to be even bigger. Yikes!
Check out the video below to see just how big this fella is.
