Well if the trainer hadn't decided to try and snatch back food from the crocodile's mouth ... :crazy:

Crocs aren't easily trained. Sure they can learn when feeding time is - even fish get to know - but when they spy food near to hand, instinct leaps in. I couldn't get over the fact that the man tried to retrieve the food once the croc'd made a grab for it. What buffoon tries to do that?? I doubt he'll repeat it, but as Rusty said, he was very lucky to get out reasonably unscathed.
