"Lolong," the world's largest captive crocodile whose sudden death stunned the public earlier this month, may have died of pneumonia, initial findings from the necropsy showed. Environment Secretary Ramon Paje said the one-ton reptile was suffering from "late-stage pneumonia" and went into cardia failure, based on a preliminary report submitted by a team of veterinarians and biologists sent to examine the animal. Amore detailed report on the cause of Lolong's death will be released in two weeks, Paje said in a statement.
