So Close: 'Photographer' Almost Eaten By Crocodile

March 25, 2013


This is a video of some 'photographer' in Costa Rica almost getting attacked by a crocodile. I put photographer in quotes because he's really just a jackass with a camera and a backful of tattoos I thought was a camo shirt at first. He squats by the water's edge taking pictures while his friends throw meat (or Twinkies) to attract the crocs. Also, he wasn't really almost eaten like I said in the title, he was just almost bitten. I mean, MAYBE he would have gotten eaten, but that's just speculation. And if there's one thing I've learned from the media about writing a good title it's lie your face off, then apologize for it later. Except I'm not apologizing.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Harry, who would have put that croc in a headlock and yelled at it for trying to bite him. BAD CROCODILE -- NO.

    They just wanted to communicate. That's why this crocodile whisperer told his friend to shut up. Fuck one-track minds !

    This is the bridge over the Rio Tarcoles just outside of Playa Jaco, a town popular with surfers, rich gringos, prostitutes and drug dealers.

    I remember having breakfast in a little restaurant one morning and overhearing the well dressed Colombian guy at the table next to me tell some really scared looking little thug that he had 24 hours to pay him or he was going to wind up "swimming in the Tarcoles". Being that just a week prior to that I had seen a crocodile there with a 3 foot wide head, I understood how serious this dude was and smiled inside knowing I wasn't in this thugs shoes. After the little punk got up and left the Colombian looked over at me and smiled, tipped his glass of starfruit juice and said "Salud" ("to health"). I actually wound up becoming pretty good friends with the Colombian guy.

    Good times!

    Big loss it would have been but it is good the crocs didn't eat him they would just have gotten indigestion.

    Dunno what people were worried about. He's clearly a hard-ass gangsta and can take on any crocodile.

    It's bad enough that he's down there but then he's like, "Yeah there's multiple crocs about 3 feet in front of me, but I'm going to turn my head completely away from them to tell my friends to stop worrying! I'm totally gonna be just fine taking my attention off of these huge maneaters completely within biting range. WHAT COULD GO WRONG, I ASK YOU!?"

  • My favourite part is where the idiot rudely tells his friends to shut up as they fear for his safety, a mere split second before the croc almost devours him. What a fucking retard.

    That bridge is a major spot where crocs get feed by idiot tourist, and eat bodies that fall into it...

  • Panick

    ... not to mention bodies the local Colombian narcos let "fall" in there.
