Villagers capture world's largest crocodile (which weighs one ton and is an incredible 21ft long)

Long tail: Dozens of local residents gather around the animal, which is believed to have killed a fishermanPrice haul: Residents use their hands to measure the 21ft salt-water crocodile

The beast was caught, after a three-week hunt, in a creek in the Philippines by villagers who had lived in fear of it for more than 20 years. Its nearest rival in the monster stakes is Cassius, an Australian salt-water crocodile which measures a 'mere' 18ft - and which is still on the loose in the Northern Territory.
