I had a friend send me the same pix, his dad got it from some friend in the military. Same story, checking his stomach now, one person saw him eat someone.

This crocodile was found in New Orleans swimming down the street. 21 FT long, 4,500 lbs, around 80years 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 its stomach will be analyzed this Friday at 2:30pm.


A survivor (while in the waters) said she witnessed a crocodile eat another human....there are times that I still can't believe what has happened.....

MYMC, that for me was your greatest contribution. My wife tells me about or sends me that stuff - I've always been a skeptic, but couldn't disprove them. I really look forward to using the link you posted!

First clue: Crocodiles don't live on the Gulf Coast.

The picture of the crocodile was taken about a year ago in Africa as i recall. It was however, preying on humans.
