Largest Crocodile In Captivity

An Australian crocodile called Cassius Clay has been declared the biggest in captivity by Guinness World Records, although his reign may be brief after reports of a rival giant emerged.

Measuring just under 18 feet and weighing close to a tonne, Cassius was captured in the Northern Territory in 1984.

Named after the legendary boxer, better known as Muhammad Ali, he has called the Marineland Melanesia crocodile park on Green Island, off the far north Queensland coast, home for the past 24 years.

Guinness World Records spokesman Chris Sheedy said Cassius was one of a few record holders to be honoured with a double-page spread in the 2012 Book of Records.
