Lolong, the world’s largest saltwater crocodile is dead!

The world’s largest saltwater crocodile in captivity has died!

Lolong was captured in Bunawan in 2011. The reptile measured at 6.2 meters (20 feet and 4 inches) by Australian zoologist Adam Britton.
Guinness World Records proclaimed Lolong as the largest saltwater crocodile in captivity.
It was captured by professional hunters after a 3-week hunt due to a spate of attacks that killed two residents and several animals.
Authorities will try to determine what caused the death of Lolong, which had become a star attraction of the marshy town of Bunawan with 37,000 people about 830km southeast of Manila.

Experts estimate that the crocodile was more than 50 years old.
