Man feeds deadly crocodile like puppy (video)

Updated: 


A man in Costa Rica was filmed feeding a deadly crocodile like a trained puppy.

In the video, uploaded on YouTube, the fearless man is seen enticing the croc out of a river and treating it like a pet dog as tourists watch on.

He is seen standing in the muddy river without shoes on his feet and hangs the bait from his mouth before the huge reptile grabs it.

The footage was uploaded by user Forest who filmed the video in 2011 when he was studying in Costa Rica.

Last year, a zookeeper in Thailand had his head snapped by a crocodile as he attempted a death-defying trick to a crowd of tourists.

The incident was caught on film by a tourist in the audience at the Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm and Zoo, shows Pravit Suebmee, 27, placing his head inside the crocodile's mouth.

But the animal decided to bite down on Suebmee's head, which wasn't part of the plan.

The crocodile begins to shake him around but, luckily for him, decides to let go reasonably quickly.
