Most people would never agree to stick their head in a crocodile's mouth, which, according to the Huffington Post, can bite with a force of 3,700 pounds per square inch.
This soon-to-be viral video of a trainer in Thailand having his head clamped between a croc's strong jaw is good evidence why doing such a thing can be a bad idea. However, despite having his head bitten, the trainer somehow escaped with minor injuries.
HuffPost sets up the video:
In graphic video of the incident, Pravit Suebmee, 27, can be seen rubbing the croc's snout with sticks as a partner holds the reptile's tail. Suebmee then says a prayer and begins to insert his head into its mouth. Moments later, the croc bites down and begins to shake with Suebmee caught in its jaws. He breaks free about a half-second later.
Watch the footage below (Warning! Video may be disturbing to some viewers):
Suebmee escaped that horrifying ordeal with some minor bite wounds, according to the Bangkok Post.
The owner of the Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo told the Post that no trainers have ever been bitted before. He theorized that the crocodile may have gotten scared when the trainer slipped on the wet surface and touched the animal's cheek.
