Huge reptile caught in Zimbabwe

In Zimbabwe, a hunter named Garrett Wales caught a giant crocodile, which he called a "man-eating dinosaur." For five days, he and his team waited for the right moment to hunt down the 4.5-meter-long beast.

Wales shared the footage on Instagram. He found the rarely seen crocodile near the Save River (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photo).

The hunter from Texas said he had never seen a reptile of this size before. According to the American, he accidentally stumbled upon a story about a "monster" allegedly living in Zimbabwe while traveling.

After hearing the gossip, Wales decided to place a bait on the shore and wait for the result. After watching the water for several days, he managed to spot a huge crocodile in the reeds.

"This thing was sunning itself in the reeds," the Texas resident recalled.

On the fifth day, the hunter managed to kill the crocodile when it was 6 meters away and, with the help of his comrades, pulled the reptile to the shore. The American needed 8 people to lift the crocodile.

According to the hunter, it weighed about 450 kilograms.
