Bunawan, Agusan del Sur

It is now 2013. I scanned my pictures and found out that I haven't shared yet this picture of Lolong. This was taken last June 2012.

Agusan del Sur (The Land of Golden Opportunities), is known for Lolong. The longest saltwater crocodile ever captured.

Agusan del Sur has mountain ranges in eastern and western sides forming a valley. Flows here is the famous Agusan River. The third longest river here in the Philippines. One of the prominent features in the Agusan River basin is the presence of Agusan Marsh. With a total area of 19,197 hectares. The marsh is a home to endangered and endemic flora and fauna and became a wildlife sanctuary in 1996.

Meet Lolong, the largest crocodile in captivity. An Indo-Pacific or Saltwater crocodile. A 20-feet and 3 inches (6.17 m). This endangered specie was named after Ernesto "Lolong" Goloran Cañete. He is one of the veteran hunters of crocodile and from Palawan Crocodile Reservation Center who led the hunt. He died of a heart attack several days before the crocodile was captured. Lolong is now kept in an enclosure at Bunawan Eco-Park and Wildlife Reservation Center in Barangay Consuelo (8 km out of town).

Another pride of the Philippines because Lolong was officially certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the "World's biggest crocodile in captivity."
