World’s Largest Crocodile Captured in Philippines

A 21 foot, 2,370 pound crocodile was captured after a three week hunt by villagers in the Philippines. The one-ton beast is considered by most to be the world’s largest crocodile.

Villagers believe the crocodile killed a water buffalo and attacked a fisherman during the last month. As it is against the law in the Philippines to kill crocodiles, the beast will star in an exhibit at an ecotourism park.

Check out this incredible video of Lolong that was posted on YouTube.
