VIDEO: Crocodile bites performer’s head during show (Graphic)

A crocodile trainer almost lost his head during a stunt that went horribly wrong at a Thai crocodile farm on Monday.

During the trick the performer placed his head in a croc’s mouth when suddenly and unexpectedly the animal snapped its jaws shut. The animal then shook the man violently by his neck before releasing him and scurrying away into the water.

A video of the terrifying incident at the Samutprakarn farm shows the performer first placing his hand between the croc’s open mouth only to remove it successfully before the animal snapped it’s jaws shut.

The video went viral on social media yet no information on the farm’s location or the performer’s identity was given. Netizens suspected that the stuntman might have put his head into the animal’s mouth in the wrong direction.

Amazingly the stuntman appears to have survived the attack.
