Monster Croc Hunt

Crocodile expert Dr. Adam Britton needs help from local crocodile expert Ronnie Sumiller and his team to perform Lolong's official measurement for the Guinness Book of World Records. Filmed by Director of Photography Rob Taylor.
In 2009, a giant rocked a small Filipino community when it attacked and killed two schoolgirls. The beast terrorized the region for two more years, killing fishermen and water buffalo. A crocodile hunter wrangles a croc believed to be the culprit, but at 23 feet long its record-breaking size doesn't match eyewitness reports that estimate the real killer's length at 40 feet! With no proof, the experts and cameras leave, but many in the community believe a giant killer croc is still lurking.
