Philippine Crocodile Breaks Guinness World of World Records
Lolong, the largest saltwater crocodile in the world according to the Guiness Book of World Records, was captured back in September in a marsh on the island of Mindanao.
Lolong weighs over a ton and measures a little past twenty feet. His new home, a crocodile park, welcomes him as their newest attraction.
“The largest crocodile in captivity is Lolong, a saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), who measured 6.17m,” Guinness said on its website.
“Lolong’s weight was also measured at a nearby truck weigh-bridge and verified as approximately 1 075kg.”
He gets hundreds of visitors a day.
Cassius, the former title holder, is an Australian saltwater crocodile whose weight and height measures a little less than Lolong’s. Cassius was captured back in 1984 and has since resided in a crocodile park on an island off of Queensland.
