There was one true 16 footer on the Nueces (Alligator). I saw it with my own eyes twice over the span of about 8 years.

This croc looks bigger.

From the article posted above:

It measured 15 feet, with several feet on the tail having broken off from an old wound.

15' is massive. It is about the girth after 11 or 12 feet. The girth of my croc was 1.5 times wider than me.

I thought the tail seemed to be shorter than I expected in the second picture. But, then, I don't know croc.
