In nature, size matters. It means power, dominance and survival. Now, Barr is on a mission to measure the biggest wild crocodile he can find. Because of their enormous size, these animals are difficult and dangerous to capture - making it nearly impossible to get an accurate measurement with a regular tape measure. So Barr sets out to test a new technology for sizing these large animals up - a specially designed laser device with a built-in HD camera.
