Giant croc caught in the Philippines

Villagers and experts have captured a 600kg saltwater crocodile which they plan to make the star of a planned ecotourism park in The Philippines.

The male crocodile was described in an AP report as 6.4 meters (21 feet) long which, if confirmed, would make it bigger than the 5.5-meter saltwater crocodile in Cairns, Australia.

The Australian crocodile has been cited by the Guinness Book of Records as the biggest captive crocodile in the world.
But now, it is likely that the new record would belong to this Philippines crocodile.
Mayor Cox Elorde said the crocodile killed a carabao in an attack witnessed by villagers last month and is also suspected of having attacked a fisherman who went missing in July.

Elorde said putting the huge crocodile in a tourism park would turn it “from a threat into an asset.
Elorde said that dozens of villagers and experts ensnared the crocodile along a creek in Bunawan town, Agusan del Sur, after a three-week hunt.

Villagers used a trap to capture it.
No tears were reported on the creature after its capture.
