The largest Philippines Crocodile

The largest crocodile, possibly in the world, was recently caught in the southern part of the Philippines!
A monster 21-foot (6.4-meter) saltwater crocodile, believed to be the biggest ever captured, has been trapped in the southern Philippines after a spate of fatal attacks. The 2,370-pound (1,075-kilogram) male is suspected of eating a farmer who went missing in July in the town of Bunawan.

Guinness World Records lists a saltwater crocodile caught in Australia as the largest crocodile in captivity, measuring 5.48 metres. Saltwater crocodiles can live for more than 100 years and grow to 7 metres.
