Good Christ! I didnt think US Crocs grew that big! Its as big as a Nile Croc or an Aussie salt water Croc. Thats the biggest one ive heard of outside Australia or Africa.

LOL...looks familiar

Do a search on the Pointe-Noire, Republic of Congo Croc

The croc actually weighed 1,900lbs and was 16ft

picture is real of course but story is a hoax....

one thing i noticed that stands out right away

where is the license plate on the back of the truck ?

and also i have never seen numbers displayed like they are on the tailgate here in the US.

the truck and building behind the men suggest Africa being the origin of the picture.

The largest ever killed is 28.4ft. At least according to Guinness.

the largest in captivity is in Asia of course.

Thanks Timcouchfanclub, those are some evil looking crocks. The biggest ive seen was about a metre and a half long at a Zoo. Id love to see one of the really big ones. But not too close up.

Well...www.ebaumsworld.com... has been known to still regard known hoaxes as real stories..... They STILL show the infamous WTC UFO video (a Sci Fi Channel promo) as the genuine thing!


Anyhoo, one should also remember that we have ALLIGATORS down here in the south, not crocs, hehe....


Hey Janus, if you ever come to Tampa, be sure to visit Busch Gardens. I believe the biggest gator there is over 14' long! (that's over 4 meters for you non-yanks)

Heheh i will Gazrok, i was in Florida last in '92 on vacation. Never went to Busch Gardens tho, spent most of my time at sea world looking at the Manatees and sharks. But should i go again ill certainly pay this gator a visit.

I got that in an email with some other shots. The story was so full of holes, it was an obvious hoax. Check out snopes.
