The enormous crocodile measured 15 feet and 1.5 inches and was caught up in the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve in North Queensland.

 

 

The team captured Duncan using a floater trap, before measuring the croc, attaching a new GPS tracker and sending him on his way.

The new tracker is expected to provide Australia Zoo and experts with important data and information on the crocodiles travels.
