Films: Crocodile 2-Death Swamp (2002)
Height/Weight: Three times that of an average saltwater crocodile.
Summary: If you remember that time a mother crocodile twice the size got so fed up with humans that she carved a path of destruction for just the one, then you're probably wondering what became of her last kid. We can't be for sure if this one is actually her son, but we don't see any other gigantic crocs around here.
History: In the swamps of Santa Cristo, Acapulco, Flat Dog and her son have moved to where the humans supposedly don't go. Unfortunately, they didn't count on bank robbers crashing there in a plane along with some other folk. Flat Dog is shot to death after killing one of them, but her son immediately picks up where she left off. And he happens to be a LOT bigger too...
Notable Kills: Snatches a heckler from a window, and BRINGS DOWN AN ENTIRE HELICOPTER BY HIMSELF.
Final Fate: After killing the majority of people, the croc is led into a part of the river filled with flammable gasoline and explosives. The beast is soon trapped by the flames, and is blown up.
Powers/Abilities: Immense strength.
Weakness: Heavy artillery.
Scariness Factor: 4-Unlike his mother, the son of Flat Dog has fewer bad CGI scenes, and tears everyone apart as a monstrous reptile animatronic worthy of realism. Nothing is an obstacle for this beast, be it prey in the air or just out of reach. So think twice before trekking through swampy terrain. Even the big ones can hide rather well...
Trivia: -Crocodiles are quite good at leaping in the air, though they do so by staying at the water's surface so they can actually see their target. Once they do, they use their tails to lift them upwards just high enough to chomp on food.
-Instead of Tobe Hooper, Gary Jones directed this film. He was a good friend of Hooper, having done "Mosquito" with him in the previous decade.
