How Big Is This Croc?

This is a big crocodile, but it is not quite as big as it appears, and it does not come from where it is commonly said to have been shot. While most internet sources say it was shot in Niger, this fellow actually came from the extreme north of Zimbabwe near Mozambique. It's a big croc, but the picture is made bigger by forced perspective -- placing the people well back from the animal. This croc is said to be about 15 feet long based on a 25 mm cigarette filter lying slightly in the foreground.
