A Huge Crocodile?


I saw this photo somewhere in the Internet and it says world’s most huge crocodile. Do you believe it? At a first short glance, I thought so too at least. Then again, when I checked the whole photo, I saw a small girl standing near it. I mean come on! Who in their right mind would let a kid or even a grownup stand near a very huge crocodile?

I know many people have this misconception that they are slow moving but believe me, they can be fast before you know that their jaws already grabbed you. I would like to believe this photo is real but that little girl standing near it just made it impossible for me to think this was not faked.

    Do you really think it is alive?

    That crocodile has been shot and is dead. It took two Landcruisers to pull him out of the waterhole once he had been shot. It has two other crocs approximately the same size sharing the waterhole with it, who will most likely meet similar fates due to the fact that they are taking cattle from the community. Be assured that the image is not a fake.

    While this croc at 6.5 metres is considered quite huge, they have been recorded up to nine metres. So he isn’t the largest in the world. To get an idea of him in motion, watch the Australian film ‘Rogue’ about a 7m crocodile. It will give you a real sense of scale as to the size of the one in this photo.

  3. great! will definitely check it out. thank you for the tip
