World’s largest Crocodile found in an ecotourism park

World Record Crocodile: 2,259 Pounds And 20 Feet Long

A saltwater crocodile in the Phiippines has been declared the world’s largest in captivity.

The crocodile weighs more than 2,200 pounds, is 20 feet long and eats up to 22 pounds of meat per week.

He’s become a tourist attraction in the town of Bunawan, where an ecotourism park was built around his enclosure.

“Lolong” is the croc’s name. He was captured last year after a three-week long hunt, which came after the crocodile was believed to have killed a girl and a fisherman in the town.

The Guinness Book of World Records recently declared him the largest saltwater crocodile in captivity.
