Who wants to go play with some alligators in an infested alligator pit?
File this one under ‘Don’t Try This at Home’. You’d have to be pretty crazy to willingly want to go and swim in an alligator pit in the first place, but this guy decides to bring one of those inflatable crocodile beach rafts with him when he does.
I don’t think you can doubt that this guy is totally out of his mind. It’s surprising that the alligators just seem only slightly annoyed by his intrusion.
I guess they weren’t too impressed by his poor imitation of one of their relatives. The man’s name is Chris Wieand and he did this stunt at Everglades Outpost in Florida. “It was a unique experience to be directly on their level looking face to face,” Wieand is quoted in the video’s description.
I don’t think that’s how most people would explain an experience like that, Chris, but we’re glad it was you and not us!
