Zoo stunts are quite entertaining to watch. But behind the entertainment lies real danger, such as this shocking scene.
A Thai zoo performer placed his head inside a crocodile’s mouth. It is safe to say that he has done it many times but suddenly, the reptile clamped its jaws on his head.
The zookeeper tries to put his head inside the crocodile’s open jaw.
The wild animal somehow obliged and remains still as the man do his trick. He successfully placed his head inside the croc and holds it for several seconds.
Getting in was easy, but getting out is not…
Before he could remove his head inside the croc’s mouth, its jaws snapped!
The reptile clamped its jaws on the man’s head as the horrified audience watch in terror.
Fortunately, the croc releases the man’s head and slides back into the water. Meanwhile, the zookeeper shrieks in pain from his injuries.
It seems this is not the first time that the zookeeper was attacked by a crocodile. In fact, the man was said to have been “showing off” previous wounds, including a missing finger, to the crowd of six before the performance.
The footage was filmed by a tourist at a free crocodile show on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand.
