That second shot is crazy. Is that a trainer or an audience member? I seem to remember a video of a similar situation where the croc or gator decided to clamp down. No thanks.

one drip of sweat or the slightest touch of the interior of the mouth will cause it to clasp its jaws. dumb thing to do

I have to agree about the stupidity of the second shot. I have an old book where a scientist naturalist was dressing one out to be stuffed for an exhibit. It had been dead for over a day, but he put his foot in the mouth intending to tear something apart. The jaws snapped shut on his foot capturing him for about an hour of trying to pry the jaws open.

The rest of the body had already been removed from the skin, so it was just the skin and head. They must be harder to kill than a snake or gar even.
