At 22ft from its snout to the tip of its tail, it’s as long as a truck and terrorised locals in a remote Aboriginal community in Australia’s Northern Territory.
Fortunately for them it is now dead, having been shot by farmers whose cattle and goats it kept attacking. But the bad news is that two more giant crocodiles are believed to be still in the area – and could be even bigger than this one.
This picture, showing a little girl examining the dead reptile, has been circulating on the internet for some time but its origins have always been unclear.
The crocodile weighed so much it took two powerful Toyota 4x4s to pull it from the Wearyan River.
