I saw a documentary about this crock on NatGeo, pretty sad story about the kid that got eaten and the struggle of the parents between having the crock killed or having it live and provide income for the community from tourism.

Jixa: Is it bigger thanGustave?


Gustave's size is an estimate. This was measured tip to tip by an independent third party.

There are so many reports of giant great whites, anacondas, crocodiles,etc and almost none of them pan out. The largest verified sizes are typically less than what the average person assumes they are.

I see what you did there.

To be fair, all of the locals in the photo are 4'11" or shorter.

According to the documentary "Mega Python vs. Gatoroid" I watched the other night, this could get really, really bad.

Elorde said he saw a bigger crocodile escape when Lolong was captured and villagers remain wary of fishing there at night

Forgive me if I don't completely trust the fishermen's story about the one that got away.

I am less interested in how they managed to capture the thing without killing it than I am curious as to why they bothered trying to capture it without killing it. It looks like it would feed the whole village for a year. Now it looks like they need a whole tourist industry just to feed the thing enough to keep it alive. I'm calling "Chief Two Eagles" on this.

A monster like that would require like 3-4 locals a week just to keep from starving, but get a bunch of roly poly western tourists waddling through town, and it only has to choke down one a month.

What is more unusual than the huge croc is that the locals captured it and did not immediately cook it as a village feast.

Now that is a Filipino feat

I watched that. The way they hauled that thing through the mud on make-shift cart, and floated it, tied to logs, across the river was nuts.

Reminds me of that Norwegian fisherman who dragged the shark out of the water and beat it to death.

Saw Utan, previous largest Crocodile (just about the same), and it was huge.

Actually the "how" was pretty damn impressive. And yes, the sole reason for keeping it alive was for tourism money.

Saw it as well, pretty massive undertaking. 'What if' hype aside, they did claim to have footage of eye glow from an even larger croc...

Woo, there's a flashback. Always had clinging dark at the ready on my SK to give me some running room.

Damn lockjaw. Not as bad as getting jumped by Terrorantula while trying to get jbooties.

In the sequel, the bigger one that escaped shall lay eggs, which will become 15 foot monsters each. There will also be a special one, which would be around 40 feet long and weigh over 2 tons! The entire village will be devoured by these monsters and they'll call America for help, and that's when the little town gets nuked Hiroshima style.

hey, stop poaching my screenplay.

when I went to Busch Gardens in FL, I walked past the gater pen. I saw this enormous concrete colored boulder, that probably was damn close to waist high on me. Then I realized it was alive. I knew they got big, but I had no idea just how FAT they got. I remember Ron Eli playing Tarzan on the TV series, wrassling a croc just about every episode it seemed. He made it look so easy to kill them with his bad ass knife. Upon seeing that prehistoric creature, on land, and how freaking enormous it was, there is no way any one human with a knife is going to kill one of those, especially in the water. The ones they used on the tv shows were just babies, who probably had their mouths wired shut so protect the star of the show, who did his own stunts apparently.

/god, I'm old. I IMBD'd that series and it was 1966. I saw it first run. To the best of my knowledge, it has never been syndicated nor released on any video format.

Sigurdur Petursson killed a 660-lb shark with his bare hands, after dragging it out of the water onto the beach.

People have been documented to kill grizzlies and lions unarmed. Don't discount crazy and determined.
