BUNAWAN, PHILIPPINES - FEBRUARY 12: Herpetologists perform an autopsy to determine the cause of death of Lolong, the largest crocodile in captivity, at the conservation park on February 12, 2013 in Bunawan, Philippines. The 6.17 metre (20.24 feet) tetrapod fell ill and died two nights ago. The Guinness Book of World Records has now named a 5.48-meter (17-foot-11-inch) Queensland, Australia-based crocodile, called Cassius, as the largest captive crocodile. Lolong was captured in 2011 after he was suspected of biting a school girl's head off and eating a fisherman. (Photo by Jeoffrey Maitem/Getty Images)
