A very large crocodile measuring about 4 meters in length and weighing about 417 kg was caught in Florida, USA.
According to CNN and USA Today, a crocodile with a body length of about 13 feet (approximately 3.96 m) and a weight of approximately 920 pounds (approximately 417 kg) was captured in a lake near Orlando, Florida on the 26th of last month (local time)먹튀검증. This alligator is the second heaviest alligator caught in Florida, following the 473 kg alligator caught in 1989.
This alligator was caught by Kevin Brotz, a hunter with 20 years of experience. Brotz was out hunting with two of his friends at the time when they discovered the object. According to him, it took four hours to capture the crocodile. He said that during the hunting process, the crocodile jumped about 1m above the water and said, “It looked like a blue whale.”
It is said that the three people felt fear when they saw the overwhelming size of the crocodile. “I found the crocodile and lay flat in front of the boat and thought, ‘I’m going to lie down until we get back,’” said Carson Gore, who went hunting with him. “I felt like I was going to die.” “The alligator was so huge,” he said.
Brotz also said, “I felt a fear that I had never felt before,” and “I have lived my whole life looking at crocodiles, but I have never actually experienced anything like this in this area.” “Actually, we were most worried about safety because we were on a small boat,” he said. “So we kept saying, ‘We have to come to our senses. “We have to do it safely,” he said.
They killed the crocodile they caught and measured its length and weight at the water’s edge. According to reports, the crocodile may have lived at least 60 to 90 years. “It was much bigger than anything we had caught before,” Brotz said. “It looked like a huge dinosaur.” He said about 130 pounds (about 58.9 kg) of meat came from the alligator, and he plans to make the rest into taxidermy to display at his home.
In Florida, it is illegal to catch alligators indiscriminately, but alligator hunting is allowed if you have an official permit. There are about 1.3 million alligators living in the area, and the state government has been running a hunting permit program since 1988 after determining that the population has increased too much. You can only hunt in designated areas during the designated hunting period between August and November, and you must obtain a permit issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Residents with a permit can hunt up to two alligators per person. Last year, 7,804 crocodiles were captured through this program.
