[Linked Image] The biggest crocodile captured along a creek in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur on Sunday will soon become the "biggest star" in a future ecotourism park to be built in the town by the local government. Villagers and veteran hunters ensnared a 20-foot saltwater crocodile over the weekend after a three-week hunt along a creek in Bunawan town, where terrified villagers have reported at least one deadly attack by the huge reptiles. The giant crocodile weighing 2,365 pounds was captured following reports that some residents and livestock animals have gone missing for months now.

It is said to be the biggest reptile to be caught alive in the Philippines in recent years. Wildlife officials were trying to confirm whether it was the largest such catch in the world, said Theresa Mundita Lim of the government's Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau. The Guinness World Records lists a saltwater crocodile caught in Australia as the largest crocodile in captivity, measuring 17 feet 11.75 inches (5.48 meters). Saltwater crocodiles can live for more than 100 years and grow to 23 feet (seven meters).
