Monster croc captured: How big is it?

That man is hugging what's said to be the largest saltwater crocodile in captivity. News reports in the Philippines say it measures 6.4 meters long and weighs a whopping 1,075 kilograms.

So just how big is that? We plugged the stats into WolframAlpha for some comparisons. Here's what we came up with:

As if that wasn't scary enough, this monster croc weighs more than the original Mini Cooper... or about the same as the current Mini Cooper Coupe.

    That's the biggest *COP* I mean CROC captured. I hope he confess to racketeering and extortion charges. In RP, a COP and a CROC are synonymous.

    Just in time when a posted my Facebook Question, as follows"

    Who is most corrupt?

    1. Corrupt BEAST-shop of the Philippines (CBCP)
    2. Former President Gloria Arro-YAK1
    3.JJailed (for Plunder) oseph PEST-rada or
    4.Late Caudillo President Ferdinand Marco-TIC?

    When I came across this news story
    True. There are just too many "crocs/crooks" in the Philippines.These crocs (buwaya is Filipino word for corcodile) are the no. 1 cause of so much poverty in the Philippines. The Philippines belongs to the group of the most religious peoples, with a big catholic population, most populated and yet also, most corrupt. Most religious and most corrupt. A liitle bit irreconcible but can I can explain. I was born, raised ,educated and worked in the Philippines for a long time.With its cultures of corruption and violence, you are never safe (both from security forces and criminal groups) and never meets the "norm" , ie evil is the norm.if you are upright you can be ostracized, killed or called "crazy." I'm glad God brouhgt me to a millions lesser evil than the Phiippines–Roy Fabros,Ontario, Canada
