Big crocodile in the Philippines - level 3

Big crocodile in the Philippines - level 3

07-09-2011 18:00

Believe it or not, this isn’t a trailer for next Jurassic Park film. This enormous salt water crocodile which weighs a ton has been caught in the Philippines. He is one of the biggest ever to be caught in the country measuring in about 6,5 metres. Hunters set four traps to try and catch him. All of which the crocodile destroyed. But then they managed to make a stronger trap which eventually caught the reptile.

It took one hundred people to pull the crocodile from a creek, then a crane lifted him into a truck. He is gonna be on show at a new eco tourism park in the Philippines. But looking at those teeth, not sure we’d want him in our village.
