It won't be too long before Guinness World Record officially declare "Lolong" as the largest crocodile in the wrold after a  zoologist and crocodile expert from NatGeo confirmed Lolong as the biggest crocodile in the World. Lolong is a saltwater crocodile caught in Barangay Nueva Era in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur, Mindanao on September 3.

According to Britton, from National Geographic, Lolong's official measurement  is 20.3 ft. "I think under Guinness’ rules, you have to wait six months before being officially declared a world record holder," Ani Britton.

Britton will recommend to Guinness World Records the recognition of Lolong as the world’s biggest saltwater crocodile. Guinness representatives will no longer fly to the Philippines to measure Lolong and will depend instead on the results of Britton’s measurement. "I will give my official measurements to Guinness" said Britton.

The Bunawan local government, together with the Protected Areas and Wildlife Division of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, set up traps to catch the crocodile after residents reported incidents of crocodile attacks, the report said.
