The World’s Largest Crocodile Caught In The Philippines Is Beyond Terrifying

Back in 2011, residents of a small village south of the Philippine capital, Manila, managed to capture the world’s largest, living crocodile.

The 21-foot, 2,370-pound monster had been terrorizing the area for years. After it was suspected in the killing of a local fisherman, and some farmers’ live stock went missing, a team of 100 local men set out to finally catch the beast.

After an all day struggle they managed to trap the croc with steal nets, and drag it out of the small creek it was hiding in. The men then bound it up with tough rope and lifted it onto the back of a truck with the help of a crane.

Rather than killing the crocodile, the villagers decided to donate the animal to a new eco-tourism park in neighboring Agusan. After, of course, they had their chance to take pictures with it.

Sadly, this magnificent beast passed away in early 2013, two years after being brought to the eco-tourism park.
