Authorities in Australia have caught a saltwater crocodile measuring nearly 5 meters (16.4 ft), one of the biggest on record, to stop it from reaching a populated area, the Department of Tourism said on Tuesday.
"He was removed downstream from Katherine to help prevent human interaction in the more populated areas", she said.
Authorities had been hunting the giant crocodile for a decade, ranger John Burke said.
"Although this is the biggest we've caught in the Katherine River, there are bigger ones out there that come up from the Daly River", he added.
Wildlife rangers in the North Territory captured a mammoth crocodile Monday.
The ancient beast was taken to a crocodile farm - essentially a preserve that tourists can visit - in Katherine, Northern Territory wildlife operations chief Tracey Duldig said.
Since crocodiles became a protected species, crocodile numbers in the Northern Territory have exploded from 3,000 to an estimated 80,000 to 100,000.
The average saltwater crocodiles, or Crocodylus porosus, can live up to about 70 years, according to National Geographic, and during that time, can grow 17 feet (5.1 metres) long and weigh 1,000 pounds (450 kilograms).
"Yesterday afternoon rangers caught a 4.7m male saltwater crocodile in a trap on private property 60km downstream from Katherine", reads the post, which features a photo of the animal with six Parks and Wildlife employees to provide size comparison. Though it's record-breaking for the area, elsewhere in the wild, saltwater crocodiles can be much larger.
