Biggest Crocodile in Captivity Dies

Lolong, a 20.14 ft. long and 2370 pound saltwater crocodile, died at Bunawan Eco-park and research center in the Philippines. Lolong was captured in September of 2011, and when he was measured, he was put in the Guinness World record book as the largest crocodile in the world (the previous record was an australian saltwater crocodile that measured 17.97 feet long). No one knows the cause of Lolong's death. It is very sad that this mighty animal has died, but it is also sad that it lived in captivity. Animals deserve to live free and in the wild. So long, Lolong.
