Cassius, world's largest crocodile in captivity, lives in Marineland Melanesia wildlife zoo on Green Island in Australia.

A series of pictures of the largest crocodile in the world named Cassius has left people stunned. Guinness World Records (GWR) took to Instagram to share the images of this reptile. Alongside, they also posted about the crocodile that is not just a “sweetheart” but has “dreamy eyes” too.

“The good boy, who lives at Marineland Melanesia wildlife zoo on Green Island in Australia, holds the record for the largest crocodile in captivity (living). Cassius was first awarded his record on 1 January 2011, when he was measured in at 5.48 m (17 ft 11.75 in). [Fun fact: that’s as big as the Statue of Liberty’s face!]. The crocs can live for more than 100 years and grow to be up to 7 m (23 ft) long and weigh more than 1 tonne (1.1 ton),” GWR added.
