Massive, Man-Eating One-Ton Crocodile Captured in Uganda

JINJA , Uganda, (UPI) -- A monstrous, man-eating crocodile that tips the scales at 2,204 pounds has been captured in Kakira, a sub-county in Uganda.

The one-ton beast, which is believed to be just 103 lbs. lighter than the former world’s biggest crocodile, supposedly ate four people in Jinja and Mayuge districts near Lake Victoria.

A Uganda Wildlife Authority officer told The New Vision the agency believes that the reptile is about 80 years old.

Humans are slower than wild animals.Crocs this size and age most likely have slowed down a bit.

The carcass found floating in the Persian Gulf a while back was never positively identified.The tail closely resembled that of a croc,but it had obviously been floating for some time.Animal carcasses tend to become greatly distorted and hard to identify after being in the water for extended periods of time.
