I didn't really know where else to put this, I know it's not a lizard.
Wow, that's pretty awesome/shocking...kind of scary though!
Yea that dude has some major cojones!
Its also possible that its the old snake charmer's trick of sewing the mouth shut!
All the power in a croc's jaws is directed in closing of the mouth. The ones that open the mouth are very weak.
Merlin- there are several years worth of videos of this same crocodile on Youtube (he's missing an eye). He wouldn't last very long with his mouth sewn shut.
He would if he was being tube fed. Thats the way the snake charmers did it with their cobras.
That's lame. I'll see if I can dig up any feeding videos.
I'm not saying that this is the case here but the fact that the croc never opens its mouth is suspicious.
Merlin I couldn’t agree more with you. However, after doing a bit research on you tube i found only two separate videos in which this individual was able to open Poncho's mouth. Regardless of that, I am still very suspicious as to why in fact this crocodile is so "docile". Could it by some form of tranquilizer? Or could it truly be one of those rare cases?
YouTube title - "Man tries to get eaten by Crocodile Chito Y Poncho"
This is extremely odd...
He seems super lethargic. But, if everything is on the up and up, that is pretty cool.
My observation as well. Did you notice how he actually had to push the croc out of the water. Even assuming a "tameness" factor, this animal is not behaving normally. It is listless and seems at time to be limp. There is more to this than meets the eye.
Seems to me it has some kind of health defect. Like Merlin said above. It's not tame or docile, it just can't plain move.
Which would account for it's obesity problem as well.
yeah.. insane! I wonder if it was well fed..stuffed when he did this..
