:WKMG 6 (Orlando, Florida) April 03 Largest Crocodile In North America Dies
:Bonita Springs, Florida: Big Joe, a crocodile who lived the good life at a Bonita Springs tourist attraction, is dead.
:The 15-footer at Everglades Wonder Gardens was believed to be about 75 years old.
:Big Joe has been billed as the largest North American crocodile in the world. He came to Wonder Gardens in 1936 when he was caught in a fisherman's net in Key Largo.
:The 1,200 pound wonder ate about 30 pounds of chicken, fish and other handouts each week
:Big Joe will live on. A taxidermist is making arrangements for a permanent display.
:His living successor is Crusher, a 45-year-old croc measuring 14 feet.
:
Crusher was indeed impressive. He was however, a distant second to UTAN "King of the Crocs" a nearly 20' monster salty/siamese hybrid weighing neaqrly 2,000 lbs currently on display at Alligator Adventure in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Pics avail by email. Crusher will be missed..........
