Any interaction with an alligator, one of the deadliest and scariest predators you can encounter, can result in serious injury or even death. They are among the fastest and most ferocious of reptiles, so you must pray that they never come into contact with them.
A video that has gone viral on social media shows an old man trying to trap an alligator using a simple piece of cloth that resembles a shirt. The images are as bizarre and scary as they sound when reading. The man seemed confident and adept at catching the large reptile at first, but as the video progressed, the old man could be seen falling uncontrollably to the ground. He tried to back away and seemed frightened to see the alligator’s dangerous attacking moves.
The older man’s hand was momentarily stuck in the gator’s mouth. The lord was able to save himself unharmed, when the reptile promptly opened its mouth and left the man. This video is an excellent example of why it is never a good idea to handle wildlife without proper training and support.
Reddit users have watched the shocking video countless times, but they still seem stunned by it based on the number of comments left.
“Damn how he threw that shirt, I really thought this guy knew what he was doing,” one user commented.
Another user wrote that “the guy is very lucky the super fast second snap didn’t hit his foot or leg! It was that close.”
