What possessed a 27-year-old animal handler in Thailand to put his head into the mouth of a crocodile? Showmanship I guess. Well, he is lucky to be alive after a dangerous stunt went TERRIBLY wrong over the weekend.

In the middle of a show for a bunch of tourists, he stuck his head in a huge crocodile's wide open mouth, something he apparently has done many times before. But this time, the crocodile immediately clamped down on his face and started shaking him around. Luckily, it was only for a second, and the handler survived without any serious injuries. It's safe to say that he'll have some major scars to remind him this incident.
