Crocodile is estimated to be 60 years old.John Burke, senior wildlife officer states to International media that we’ve called it a lot of things over the years because it’s been so hard to catch. It is a bit of a thrill, but you’ve also got to admire the size of the animal and how old it is. You’ve got to have a bit of respect for it.The animal was taken to a crocodile farm to keep it separate from the local human population.
