"So long, Lolong."
That was the phrase echoing around social media on Monday after news emerged the night before that Lolong, the world's largest crocodile in captivity, had died in the southern Philippines.
The outpouring of online shock and grief over the demise of the heavyweight reptile, which was more than 6-meters (20-feet) long, could be considered a little surprising, given suspicions Lolong may have been involved in at least two lethal attacks on people before he was captured in 2011.
Well, how old WAS he?
Sounds like a "croc" to me.
Good morning banasy.
Good afternoon, Rawr.
Looks so scary.
Terrible creatures. Exterminate them all.
It may be the cynic in me but I don't think the grief and shock are anything more than crocodile tears.
Good one. LOL
