Default One big Croc

Got this in email today. Ehhh

Quote:
Now this is a Crocodile!

Supposedly, this crocodile was found in New Orleans swimming down the street. 21 FT
long, 4,500 lbs, around 80 years old minimum.

Specialists said that he was looking to eat humans because he was too old
to catch animals. This crocodile was killed by the army last Sunday at 3:00
pm, currently he is in the freezer at the Azur hotel. The contents of it'*
stomach will be analyzed this Friday at 2:30pm.

A survivor (while in the waters) said she witnessed a crocodile eat another human

Hate to burst your bubble but this is a load of
Yes, the pics are of an actual croc. But they were taken in 2003, and it'* a Nile croc that was found somewhere around the Congo. A quick google search for Croc Hoax will shoot this down.

Yea, we are only supposed to have Alligators. Still, the sheer size of that thing is impressive.

I hate to be all like "I'm so smart" but umm...I'm so smart. I'm looking at the pics thinking this has to be a hoax. If the army took it down, then where are the wounds on the animal...?
