im just happy people haven't tried to compare gustave to one of the real monster salties
The Orinoco crocodile (Crocodylus intermedius), is a critically endangered crocodile. Its population is very small, estimated at only 547 in the wild and it can only be found in freshwater environments in Colombia and Venezuela of northern South America, in particular the Orinoco
River and its tributaries. Extensively hunted for their skins in the
19th and 20th centuries, this species is one of the most critically
endangered species of extant crocodiles. It is a very large species, in fact the largest species of crocodilian and predator in the Americas.
Males have been reported up to 6.6 m (22 ft) in the past but such sizes
do not exist today, 5.2 m (17 ft) being a more widely accepted maximum
size. Males average at 4.1 m (13 ft) in length weighing 380 kg (840 lb),
while females are slightly smaller averaging at 225 kg (496 lb). Sexual dimorphism isn't as profound as in some other species. The coloration is light even in adults.
The biology of the Orinoco crocodile is poorly documented in the
wild, mostly due its small population. It is thought to have a more piscivorous diet with an opportunistic nature resulting in a generalist predatory behavior. The Orinoco crocodile is an apex predator and will take the opportunity to prey on a variety of reptiles, birds and mammals, including caimans on occasion. The prey base is mostly made up of large predatory fish,
challenging the general view by the locals complaining about the
crocodile hunting local fish to very low numbers. Despite its large
size, the Orinoco crocodile rarely poses a threat to humans, despite several reports. Reproduction takes place in the dry season when the water level is lower. The Orinoco crocodile is a hole nester, digging holes in the sand to lay their eggs. The female guards the nest and young up to several years."

Lolong, and the largest Salt Water crocodiles, could definitely give an adult hippo a run for it's money.Gustave reputation has mostly been built on reputation. I think his size is greatly fabricated as well.He looks.16 feet 1,400 lbs max.
