Wildlife rangers in northern Australia captured a massive 600 kilogram (1,300 pound) crocodile after first spotting it almost a decade ago.
Tracey Duldig, acting director of the Department of Tourism and Culture, said: "He was removed downstream from Katherine to help prevent human interaction in the more populated areas".
The crocodile was taken to a farm outside Katherine where it's likely to become the newest tourist attraction.
"We've called it a lot of things over the years because it's been so hard to catch", Burke said.
Measuring 4.7 metres and weighing in at up to 600 kilograms, the snappy saltie was trapped by rangers in Taylor's Park, around 60 kilometres downstream from the Top End town of Katherine.
"But you've also got to admire the size of the animal and how old it is".

The largest crocodile ever captured in Australia measured 6.4 meters, according to records.
There are an estimated 100,000 saltwater crocodiles in Australia's Northern Territory.
The robust male croc joins the ranks of 190 other crocodiles that have already been captured and moved from populated areas in the Northern Territory this year. Though it's record-breaking for the area, elsewhere in the wild, saltwater crocodiles can be much larger.
Northern Territory-based crocodile expert Grahame Webb said saltwater crocs, also known as estuarine crocodiles, were heading farther upstream into fresh water river systems as their population has boomed since they were protected by federal law in 1971.
