Monster croc gets own park in Philippines
September 19, 2011
A monster crocodile is the star attraction at its own nature park that's opened in the Philippines, weeks after the beast's capture.People are already paying 20 pesos (45 Australian cents) to enter the compound in the town of Bunawan for a look at the 6.4-metre male saltwater crocodile, which is believed to have killed two people.Bunawan Mayor Edwin Elorde hopes to have another attraction soon - a reportedly even larger crocodile sighted by residents of this largely rural town on the southern island of Mindanao..
"They saw it with their own eyes - it was bigger," he told reporters."Our estimates are that it would be 25 to 30 feet long with body width of around four feet."
The two huge crocodiles were sighted killing a water buffalo in August. So far, only one has been caught after a two-week long hunt.
