GRAPHIC: Circus Trainer Puts Head In Crocodile’s Mouth And SNAP! WOW That’s A Lot Of Blood

By 03.13.17

If you’re going to stick your head in an animal’s mouth, the worst possible creature would be a saltwater crocodile, who have the strongest jaws in the world. Crocodiles can slam their jaws shut with 3,700 pounds per square inch (psi), or 16,460 newtons, of bite force. For comparison, humans have a weak force of 150 to 200 psi (890 newtons) and tigers generate around 1,000 psi (4,450 newtons). This guy said fuck the science and danger – go big with half my face ripped off or go home.

A circus trainer was attempting to wow the crowd in Ha Nam province, Vietnam by putting his head inside of a crocodile on Saturday night. Super bad idea. In an instant, the fierce crocodile snapped down on the man’s head with its powerful jaws. Then the beast thrashes from side to side to inflict even more devastating damage.

And there goes that guy’s chances of being a male model.

Once the modern-day dinosaur released the man’s face from its jaws, the man ran away with his hands covering his face as blood poured.

“Prior to the performances, the circus brought a crocodile but unfortunately it died and the replacement crocodile was put on instead,” said Pham Van High, Thanh Liem District Chairman. “There was rainy weather on Saturday evening but the circus entertainers did not want to betray the audience.”

Easy for you to say, Pham.

The trainer was wounded and is being treated at the hospital in Henan province.
