The honor of being known as the world's largest crocodile in captivity has been bestowed upon a really huge male saltwater crocodile named Lolong by the Guinness Book of World Records. The reptile was captured in the Philippines last September after supposedly killing two people. The massive crocodile measures 20.24 feet and weighs approximately 2,370 lbs.
The good news was posted on the Guinness website and the local government received an official certification for the monstrous crocodile.
Can you imagine meeting up with such an enormous creature in the middle of a river? Because of his massive size, he has certainly earned his new title. The scary thing to think about is how much bigger his friends still out in the wild are growing.
Lolong is a big hit at the crocodile park where he lives and hundreds of people flock to catch a glimpse of the big guy. Would you like to go see the world's largest crocodile in captivity?
