This handout photo taken on May 19, 2010 and provided by Marineland Melanesia on February 12, 2013 shows George Craig feeding Cassius - who has reclaimed his crown as the world's biggest crocodile in captivity, with his Australian handler saying it will boost business, on Green Island, Queensland. The 5.48-metre (17 ft 11ins) crocodile, kept in a park on an island off Australia's Queensland, held the record until "Lolong", a 6.17-metre suspected man-eater, was caught in the Philippines 17 months ago.  But with Lolong's death from a mystery illness on Sunday, Cassius is once again on top.  "The Guinness Book of World Records contacted us as soon as Lolong died," Billy Craig, a croc wrangler at Marineland Melanesia where Cassius lives, told AFP.  (AFP)
