Biggest Crocodile in the World Caught in the Philippines: Giant Croc Pics and Video

By on September 7, 2011


The largest crocodile, possibly in the world, was recently caught in the southern part of the Philippines!


The mayor claims that this crocodile could swallow three men whole, possibly an exaggeration. What’s not exaggerated is that it took 100 men to pull out this croc!


Other facts are that this crocodile weighs over a ton and has eaten a carabao / water buffalo and a fisherman!!!






Check out this picture of this giant catch with Mayor Cox Elorde of Bunawan township, Agusan del Sur Province, as he pretends to measure this huge crocodile which was captured by residents and crocodile farm staff along a creek in Bunawan

It took three weeks to hunt and find the giant crocodile but fortunately, villagers were able to capture the beast alive and have transferred her to a crocodile habitat.


This crocodile, supposedly the largest in the world, measures an astonishing 21feet which greatly exceeds the past record holder of 18 feet held by the other giant croc caught in Australia a while back.

So it seems that we’re just awaiting the official statements declaring that the Philippines does indeed have the biggest crocodile in the world!


Now here’s the scarier part. Officials say that they captured a female giant crocodile, and that there may be a BIGGER male crocodile mate.


Imagine that….. a BIGGER / LARGER croc out and about, deprived of some sweet lovin’ coz his mate is locked up… I wouldn’t go by the water anytime soon.
