Interaksyon.com reports that the National Geographic team measured "monster croc" Lolong at 20.3 feet. The saltwater crocodile-who was caught last September-has become a tourist attraction in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur.

 

According to the report, "The National Geographic team will recommend to the Guinness World Records that the beast be entered into the record books as the largest crocodile in captivity." The current Guinness record holder is Cassius, an 18-foot crocodile in Australia.

 

Despite Lolong’s fame, animal rights advocates like People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals senior Asia-Pacific campaigner Ashley Fruno said he’s better off being returned to the wild, away from human settlements.
