A monstrous 600-kilogram crocodile has been nabbed in the Northern Territory after eluding rangers for 10 years.
Though the average saltwater crocodile is about 5 meters (17 feet) long, according to National Geographic, captures of this size are rare, park authorities said. "You've got to have a bit of respect for it".

Rangers also caught at a smaller 2.3m crocodile from a trap in the Katherine River near the same area on Monday.
