Lolong, the Philippines giant crocodile caught alive in Bunawan, Agusan del Sur, can now be viewed by the public in his eco-park home in Barangay Consuelo, according to reports by several local news sites on Sunday, September 18, 2011.

The giant crocodile Lolong was named after a Palawan crocodile hunter Ernesto “Lolong” CoƱate, who died after suffering a heart attack days before the biggest saltwater crocodile in the world was captured alive.

Visitors trooped to the eco-park when the Palawan Wildlife and Conservation Center finally gave a go signal to open it on Saturday, September 17. Reports say that an entrance fee of P20 is being charged for adults and P15 for children. Senior citizens and persons with disabilities are free to enter the eco-park. The amount that will be collected will be used to maintain the crocodile and the eco-park.

CCTV cameras were installed around the area to monitor the 20.1-feet-long reptile.
