Second crocodile sought by hunters
Philippine officials say they are hunting for an even bigger crocodile after capturing a 20-foot reptile that could be one of the biggest ever caught.
Villagers and veteran hunters ensnared the saltwater crocodile over the weekend after a three-week hunt along a creek in remote Agusan del Sur province.
Terrified villagers have reported at least one deadly attack by the huge reptiles.
Weighing 2,370lbs, the crocodile was the biggest to be caught alive in the Philippines in recent years.
Theresa Mundita Lim of the Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau said wildlife officials are trying to confirm if it is the largest such catch in the world.
