This is the terrifying moment a crocodile bites a trainer's hand - then does a death roll.

The man was entertaining tourists by teasing the killer beast and putting his arm inside its mouth at a show in Phuket, Thailand.

But the hungry reptile snapped its deadly jaws shut - then did a terrifying death roll to try and subdue its victim.

Incredibly, the quick-thinking trainer escaped any serious injuries by rolling in the same direction as the crocodile which then released its grip.

Amazingly the man seems to have walked away from the incident relatively unscathed.

The end of the footage shows him standing back from the dangerous animal, cradling his hand but he doesn't seem to have done any severe damage.
