A 15-foot, 1,300-pound saltwater croc was captured in Australia.
Wildlife rangers in northern Australia captured a massive 600 kilogram (1,300 pound) crocodile after first spotting it almost a decade ago.
A MONSTER 4.7-metre saltwater crocodile - the biggest ever found in the Katherine River systems - was finally captured yesterday after a decade-long hunt.
The crocodile, a male, was "removed" to "help prevent human interaction in the more populated areas", the Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife said in a Facebook post.
"You've got to have a bit of respect for it".
"Although this is the biggest we've caught in the Katherine River, there are bigger ones out there that come up from the Daly River", he added.
While large crocs are territorial, Webb suspected the trapped croc had moved to and from the area where it was caught during the past 10 years.

In her reply, Mrs May told him: "I do not agree with your characterisation of the policy we agreed on at Cabinet on Friday". And she was given a reprieve tonight with news she will not face an immediate vote of no confidence.
The reptile will now "be taken to a croc farm in the Katherine region", she said.
After nearly a decade on the loose, authorities have finally captured a "monster" Northern Territory crocodile.
Saltwater crocodiles have seen a population boom since becoming a protected species by federal law in 1971, Northern Territory-based crocodile expert Grahame Webb said.
The government said that each year, rangers remove about 250 "problem crocodiles" from the area.
The average saltwater crocodiles, or Crocodylus porosus, can live up to about 70 years, according to National Geographic, and during that time, can grow 17 feet long and weigh 1,000 pounds.
"These crocodiles are transferred to crocodile farms or destroyed", according to the website.
