That same week, in the same area, I came across a python straddled across the road, tail in one paddy field, head in another. It's body as wide as the top part of a human's leg. It took 20 minutes for a wildlife rescue team to appear and capture the snake and return it to the surrounding mountains.
They measured it at 26 feet and considered it a danger to the small children and animals of a nearby village.

Well it's a crocodile. But colossal?? Depending on the species crocs can grow up to 7 metres. Even the ones native in Thailand grow up to 4 metres. So I wouldnt call a 2 metre croc 'colossal'.
