Lolong: The World's Largest SaltWater Crocodile

Lolong would be the world's largest saltwater crocodile in the world, according to National Geographic representatives led by Dr. Adam Briton.

Briton confirmed that Lolong has a measurement of 21feet and one-inch while the Guinness record holder named Cassius Clay from Australia was 18ft. And it is for sure will it will replace Cassius, but the process would take six months before the Guinness World officially recognizes Lolong as the largest saltwater crocodile in the world.

But despite this, Lolong's popularity dramatically increases from the time it was captured. He became the top story of different media sources, including search engines like Google. It also earned almost half-a-million  from donations, entrance and parking fees at the Bunawan Eco-Park stated by the Bunawan town mayor Edwin Elorde. Experts hoped Lolong will improve the tourism to Agusan Marsh, and to Mindanao once it became the  largest saltwater crocs in the world.
