21 FT Croc Discovered in Philipines
A 21 Ft croc? Sounds like a feature plot for B Horror movie right. Well, such things aren’t nightmares but a reality as one Philippine community found out today.
The 21-foot, 600-kg seawater crocodile caught in Agusan del Sur may very well be the largest one captured but certainly not the first nor will it perhaps be the last one to be captured in the wild.
Project director Ronald Nuer of the Bunawan Municipal Council said it took them 21 nights to snare the behemoth which, to the alarm of those who caught it, twice got out the restraining ropes before it was finally tied down after which it became overly “aggressive” three times.
Nuer added that according to the Palawan Wildlife Conservation Center which helped capture the crocodile, it is a male specimen.
Those who carefully constructed a frame around the reptile to restrain it had kept their eyes on each and every move of the crocodile’s tail and snout.
Residents were relieved with the capture of the reptile but none more than Luciano Auxtero, who believes that it’s the crocodile that ate his sister who had gone missing.
