Meet Cassius, the world’s largest captive crocodile. Cassius was rescued way back in 1987 by George Craig, Cassius’s caretaker for the past 30 years, and owner of Marineland Melanesia, a crocodile sanctuary and art gallery in Australia’s beautiful Great Barrier Reef .
Cassius is 18 feet long and weighs in at 2,200 lbs. It’s estimated that he’s about 111-years old, and has a bit of an attitude problem to boot. Before he was rescued, the surly old dinosaur was known for attacking boats and snapping off outboard motors.
Craig and Cassius have built a great relationship over the years, but Craig is definitely sure that Cassius would eat him if given the opportunity. Now that’s love.
