Meet Lolong, the World’s Largest Croc!

Super-croc-625x450

It isn't an easy feat to say, "Hey! We caught the world’s largest crocodile on camera!" But, sure enough, it's been done!

"Lolong," a saltwater crocodile weighing just over one ton, was found in Mindanao (Philippines) last September. This croc, measuring in at 6.17 meters in length, has officially been declared by the Guinness Book of World Records as the "largest such reptile in captivity."

Amazingly enough, Lolong was also the subject of "Man-Eating Super Croc," which we aired during our monumental Monster Week. Did you miss it or are you just itching to see it again?  

Check out the video below and tune in Thursday, July 5, at 8PM E/P to catch Lolong in action once again!

 



Wouldn't want to get too close to that crocodile's jaw!
