A fake on so many levels.
Does it eat moose too?
That PhotoShop is a Croc, er, Crock!
Damn Mickey Moore would not even be a snack for that Croc.
Now that is one huge crocodile. A man would not stand a chance against that guy.
Those guys are waiting for the BBQ...
That’s a lot of bags, belts, and shoes.
Call in the History channel ‘Swamp people’.
Height: 164 feet
Wingspan: 394 feet
Weight: 15,000 tons
Flight Speed: Mach 1.5
I agreee, a 16 foot long croc is entirely possible. They could be even longer.Info from your link:
“the news story says the croc measured 5 meters (equivalent to 16 feet) long and weighed 850 kilos (1,874 lbs., less than half of what the email claims), and identifies its species as Crocodylus niloticus (Nile crocodile), native to fresh-water rivers, lakes and swamps - which would explain why it was so eager to quit the ocean for dry land even though it was confronted by unfriendly humans. It was estimated to be approximately 50 years old.”
That one was from the Congo.
So it’s the real deal.
15 or 16 feet isn’t far fetched, they can go over 20 feet.
A big croc can raise the tip of it’s snout over 6 feet off the ground.
20 foot crocodiles are not rare.
Dang, this reminds me of the time my father went with my uncle on his delivery routes when we visited them in Beaumont, Texas. One of the place my uncle had to go was to deliver chickens to a park just across the State line in Louisiana so they can use them to feed the alligators. My uncle and father just watched the alligators eat the chickens while downing a couple of beers. Some chickens did get away though.
Why are those people so small?
These images appear to be authentic and correspond to a French-language news story that appeared in the Congolese weekly magazine La Semaine Africaine on July 17, 2003.
Here is a synopsis of that story, which partially confirms the information given in the email:
The creature was first reported swimming in the port of Pointe-Noire, Republic of the Congo on the night of July 5, 2003. Later, around one o’clock in the morning, it was spotted creeping up onto the beach by onlookers who phoned the police, apparently frightening the beast back into the water in the process. It returned to shore a couple of hours later only to be greeted by a fusillade of bullets from an array of weapons including a Kalachnikov assault rifle. Even so, it took nearly an hour to fell the beast, during which time the neighborhood sounded like a war zone, according to residents. A crowd of bystanders equipped with axes and knives began to approach the carcass with visions of crocodile steaks in their heads, but Mayor Roland Bouiti-Viaudo interfered, declaring it necessary to preserve the monster in the name of science and tourism. It was eventually forklifted into a container and, at last report, was bound not for the freezer of a local hotel, but for a taxidermist.
Contrary to what is reported in the email, the news story says the croc measured 5 meters (equivalent to 16 feet) long and weighed 850 kilos (1,874 lbs., less than half of what the email claims), and identifies its species as Crocodylus niloticus (Nile crocodile), native to fresh-water rivers, lakes and swamps - which would explain why it was so eager to quit the ocean for dry land even though it was confronted by unfriendly humans. It was estimated to be approximately 50 years old.
Because they were snapped with a digital camera, it was possible to retrieve the source data on the first image in the series, according to which it was taken on July 6, 2003 at 12:35 p.m.
Update: The same images were recirculated in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina in a forwarded message claiming the gigantic crocodile was found in the flooded streets of New Orleans. Read more...
As to the shadows ....you are looking at a 3 dimensional object on a ledge...
Light on the flat surface from that angle does create a shadow ...I see nothing fake
Sheeesh, I’d like to watch an alligator eat a chicken while downing a couple of beers.
I have proof of this croc, and I can provide it, along with a share of $50million, Obama’s Birth Certificate, African Unicorns, and a spare kidney, all if you help me get it out if Nigeria- Lucas Smith.
Nile crocodile; size - Wiki
The largest accurately measured male was shot near Mwanza, Tanzania and measured 6.45 m (21.3 ft) and weighed approximately 1,090 kg (2,400 lb).
7 metre (23 ft) specimens and larger have been reported, but since gross overestimation of size is common these reports are suspect. The largest living specimen is purported to be a man-eater from Burundi named Gustave; he is believed to be more than 20 feet long.
A Møøse once bit my sister
To foil a crock (or a moose) toss it a hunk of chewy cheese, like Velveta*.
Their jaws strength is in closing, not opening, their mouths, so it sticks their teeth together, effectively gluing their mouth shut long enough to escape.
*Velveeta makes good fish bait, so should be packed any time one is fishing in waters where sister biting moose or crocks are encountered. Of course, for a LARGE crock, it may take about a 50 pound or so chunck.
That movie scared the crap out of me when I was a kid, especially the part in the mine.
In that one I think the horse on the left may be a Zebra
Ditto. I was seven at the time, and it scared me for at least a year. I saw Rodan about thirty years later on some cable channel. I was laughing too hard at the “monster” to pay attention to the plot.
Try feeding PEANUT BUTTER on a cracker(not a Southern White Guy) to a duck or goose!
It is funny as He77!
