    Giant, Man-Eating Crocodile Captured in Uganda-1

    by

    A crocodile that has been blamed for killing four people on Lake Victoria in Uganda has been captured and if reports are correct, the beast could be the largest of its kind in captivity.

    According to Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) Sulani Tumanya the behemoth weighs more than a ton (about 2,300 pounds) and measures 18 feet in length, according to the New Zealand Herald. The previous record holder for largest known crocodile was a 21-foot-long, 1-ton saltwater crocodile named Lolong. That beast was captured in the Philippines and died at the age of 50 just last year.

    South Carolina's Controversial Cormorant Hunt Culls 11K Birds-3

    by

    More than 1,000 South Carolina hunters received special permits this winter to hunt double-crested cormorants on two lakes in the east-central part of the state. In the span of just one month, hunters harvested 11,653 of the fish-eating birds. One hunter alone reported killing 278 birds, according to The State newspaper.

    Local anglers requested state action to quell the rising numbers of cormorants, which they say eat enough baitfish to negatively impact game fish populations. The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources responded by introducing a special hunting program this year on Lake Marion and Lake Moultrie.

    Video: Kids vs. Jumping Carp-2

    by

    Behind the laughter, giddiness, and child-like enjoyment exhibited in this video lies a lesson in just how bad the Asian carp invasion of U.S. waters has gotten.

    The video was filmed during a river outing near Victoria, Ill. The carp are launching themselves out of the water in response to motor noise, a defensive strategy they are known for. Although amusing to those in the video, the action can be extremely dangerous — many human and fish interactions have resulted in bruises, broken bones, and concussions on the part of the boat occupants.

    Hawaii Spearfisherman Shoots Record Marlin-0

    by

    Wendell Ko landed a 506-pound blue marlin the hard way: with a speargun.

    The avid spearfisherman was hunting two miles off the Kona Coast on Hawaii's Big Island on November 20 when he spotted the monster fish cruising the depths. Ko told KITV, "It's the first time I've ever seen anything that big in the water, a marlin in particular. It was hard to miss."

    The 53-year-old nailed the 12-foot long fish with a single shot then finished it off with a few more shots. The event was captured on video by Ko’s friend and producer of the TV series "Hawaii Skin Diver" Kyle Nakamoto.

    "I call it [Ko’s shot] the money shot," Nakamoto said to KITV. "I mean, it's so hard and you need to be at the right place at the right time."
