Lolong, the biggest Crocodylus Porosus

[gallery link="file" order="DESC" orderby="rand"]

Lolong Stats:
2,370 pounds (1,075 kilograms)
20 feet, 3 inches (6.17 meters)
50 years of age (estimation)

Lolong is a male Indo-Pacific or Saltwater Crocodile captured in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur last September 3, 2012.

The name, Lolong is derived after Ernesto "Lolong" Goloran Caneta, one of the veteran crocodile hunters in Palawan Crocodile and Wildlife Reservation Center who led the hunt for him. Just days before Lolong's capture, his namesake died of a heart attack.

Wondering how exactly this creature looked like? Then, visit Nido Fortified Science Discovery Center in Mall of Asia to find out. You can imagine how huge and scary it is! I got an opportunity to visit Lolong's replica last time and I agree that this one is really HUGE.
