How do you save a Crocodile attack? In my never-ending quest for unusual useful information, I came upon an argument over how to survive being attacked by a Crocodile or Alligator. I’m in the fortunate position that hopefully, I will never need this information. However, being the kind of person I am, I like to share any tips that I come across.
No Crocs Here
I don’t know of any wild Crocs in Wales, or indeed anywhere else in the U.K. There are probably a few kept in zoos about the place. However, if you live in Australia or parts of Miami in the U.S. there probably is the chance that you may come across at least one meeting with these armour-plated beasts in your lifetime.
Jaws of Steel
Should you ever find yourself in the unfortunate position of being held tightly between the jaws of a Crocodile or Alligator and the future isn’t looking too good for you, behold, here are a few words of wisdom that could save the day. Poke it in the eye! There, remember this little gem, you never know when you might need it.
To be honest though, if you suddenly find yourself in the grip of the jaws of one of these scaly monsters, I bet the shirt on my back that the last thing you’re thinking is how you reach up with one of your index fingers to jab it right in his peeper. You’ll be history before you can say, ‘Oh my, I’m in big trouble here!’ Or words to that effect.
My real top tip is to stay well clear of these things. They need to eat, just like us, and if they see a tasty leg that’s close by, and it belongs to you, they’ll go for it. Before I bore everyone to death, I can’t believe that I’ve just read a page where one guy says poke its eye and another so-called expert says not to do that as it will make it even angrier. Really? Beware, caught in the mouth of a Crocodile, you are 100% history.
