NATURE | Supersize Crocs | Measuring a Giant Crocodile | PBS

Duration: 02:26

www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod... Crocodiles are too dangerous and too shy to approach with a tape measure. Rom Whitaker and an assistant use precise photography and the help of a computer to make an accurate size comparison between a gharial and Rom's own body length. In "Supersize Crocs," Rom takes viewers on a quest to find the largest crocodiles on the planet.

NATURE's "Supersize Crocs" airs on PBS Sunday, September 14 at 8 p.m. (check local listings), part of the 27th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc., Toyota, SC Johnson, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For more information, visit www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod...
