Lolong - Bunawan's Hottest Star Attraction of Todays

 The saltwater croc scientific name is Crocodylus porosus also known as estuarine or Indo Pacific crocodile is the largest of all living reptiles. And Lolong is one of the kind that was captured a week ago in Lake Muhaba and trending in becoming the hottest star attraction of the planned ecotourism park in Bunawan, Agusan Del Sur. 

The 21-foot, 2,370-pound notorious croc now being jailed in an 800 square meter pen secured by 1.2 meter high concrete walls topped with wire has been named after Ernesto “Lolong” Conate, a Palawan-based hunter hired to help catch it. Wildlife officials attempting to find out if the estimated 50 years old reptile is the largest saltwater crocodile ever caught alive in the world, wherein the Guinness World Book of Record a 17 feet, 11 inches long saltwater croc listed to be the recent largest crocodile captivity from Australia. 

Being feasted by many onlookers, the notorious croc is said to be suffering from stress possibly brought by social and environment change. It has not been eaten since it was captured and in my opinion maybe there’s wrong, though it said that this kind of reptile could stand for several months without eating. The huge monster Lolong should be fully adjusted first in his new environment, no mirons or other things that might stress him. And since he got caught from the wild don’t give him yet a dead prey instead a live prey till he became stable and at rest to his new environment,   expert should know this, if not...Lolong would not stay for a long in the limelight of the Bunawan.
