    World's largest croc 'Lolong' dies



    MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) - The world's largest crocodile in captivity died on Sunday, February 10, in Agusan del Sur province, reports said.

    The reptile, known as Lolong, passed away at 8.05 pm, according to Bunawan mayor Edwin Elorde.

    A municipal official told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that Lolong was found dead inside his pen by Dr. Alexander Collantes, a veterinarian at Davao Crocodile Park.

    The reptile had not been eating his usual meal late last month, and its left stomach "ballooned" but the cause of death has not yet been determined.

    Captured in September 2011, the saltwater crocodile measured 20.24 feet and weighed approximately 2,370 pounds.

    Lolong was caught after a 3-week hunt involving around 100 people.

    The croc, believed to be about 50 years old, was suspected of eating a farmer who went missing in Bunawan, and a 12-year-old girl whose head was discovered in 2009.

    Lolong was confirmed by Guinness World Records as the largest crocodile in captivity in June 2012.

    The record was expected to boost the town's tourism.

    Here's what people on Twitter had to say about Lolong's demise:

    Too bad it had to be this croc that kicked the bucket and not the others.

    It was not adapting well in captivity. They should bring it to a taxidermist, after autopsy of course.
