This past Sunday, Lolong, a saltwater crocodile caught in the Philippines, went into the Guinness World Record book for being the largest representative of its species presently living in captivity.
Weighing more than a ton and measuring up to 20.24 feet (6.77 meters), the animal raises considerable fears that other like it may still be swimming free in the marshlands and creeks in the Philippines.
It is rumored that, before being caught and taken from its natural habitat, Lolong attacked and even killed some people from the nearby communities.
Presently, environmentalists argue that Lolong is proof of the Philippines' biodiversity and should be taken care of as such.
More so given the fact that, since its capture, the animal helped raise $72,000 (roughly €57,000) from entry fees to the zoo where it is kept.
