Natgeo: Lolong is World’s Largest Crocodile

A Philippine crocodile called “Lolong” has been confirmed on Wednesday the biggest in captivity by the National Geographic Channel representatives led by Dr. Adam Britton. According to the “Balita Pilipinas” newscast, the NatGeo team declared that the giant crocodile measured at 21 feet and 1 inch.

Weighing more than a ton, Lolong was captured late Saturday night, September 3, along a creek in Bunawan township in Agusan del Sur.

Named after a local common name, the Bunawan crocodile will be recommended by Dr. Britton to Guinness World Records the recognition of Lolong as the world’s biggest saltwater crocodile, “Balita Pilipinas” said. The newscast said Guinness representatives will no longer fly to the Philippines to measure Lolong and will depend instead on the results of Britton’s measurement.

The celebrity crocodile earned nearly half-a-million pesos from donations, entrance, and parking fees at the Bunawan Eco-Park and Research Center in Barangay Consuelo as of Oct. 26, said Bunawan town mayor Edwin Elorde.

It was reported before that Lolong may have eaten a farmer who went missing in July, along with several water buffaloes in the southern town of Bunawan, crocodile hunter Rollie Sumiller said.

A crocodile also bit off the head of a 12-year-old girl in Bunawan in 2009, according to the environment ministry.
