The zookeeper first plays around with two small wooden sticks. He then lowers down his head a bit and teases the crocodile by fiddling with wooden sticks inside its open jaw. He then goes one step ahead and puts his head inside the croc's mouth.

The predator then snaps its jaws shut terrified onlookers.

It was a lucky escape for his as he did not end up in the crocodile's tummy.
