When a crocodile attack is a very high probability, there is an extremely fine line between brave and stupid.
In Rio Tarcoles, Costa Rica the crocodiles don’t take kindly to photographers that overstep their boundaries. It’s clear these crocs are enjoying the treats getting tossed in the water for them to snack on, but one of these hungry reptiles sets his sights on the cameraman that is only a few feet from the water.
With all his friends yelling at him to come back up to higher ground, where it’s much safer, he ignores the warnings and doesn’t realize that he is about to become lunch for these blood-thirsty crocs.
WARNING: Video contains strong language that is NSFW!
In what seems like a split-second reaction, this “brave” photographer luckily catches a glimpse of the crocodile attack, and manages to scurry away without a scratch.
It wouldn’t have taken but another second before this story could have taken a dramatic turn for the worse.
Definitely not worth it dude, next time listen to your friends. They may save you from losing an arm, a leg, or worse yet… your life.
