Accident → Child remains retrieved from the crocodile stomach

Video of a man pulling mauled remains of his son from an crocodile's stomach in Malaysia.

This 11-year-old boy was snatched while swimming in a river in Borneo with a friend (Malaysia). A 15-year-old friend told authorities the two took a break from studying and went swimming. He told the croc was "as big as a boat" and moved "as fast as lightning." The report says the teenager fled in fear and shock and cowered in his room until the younger boy's mother came by hours later to ask where her son was. Crocodiles become more aggressive during the breeding season and that the risk of attacks is increasing because more people are venturing into the remote wilderness. And if it has grabbed you hit it repeatedly on its relatively sensitive nose, poke it in the eyes and scream. Gators don't like resistance.
Don't try to pry the jaws open. You won't be able to. Play dead. They stop shaking their prey when they think that it's dead, wedging the body in their pantry for later consumption. This is when you escape. Hopefully. An Australian review of unprovoked crocodile attacks on humans between 1971 and 2004 found that 17 victims of the 62 attacks died. Fatal attacks have generally involved saltwater crocodiles longer than 4 m that have the strength and power required to overpower an adult human.

I'd have to disagree with you there Liddy, as a lemming is so much easier pray than an unarmed human. I have fingers and will poke whatevers trying to eat me in the eye. Gonna have to work to eat my ass....literally....

People eat animals all the time. When you see this, you remember that we are merely animals as well. Only humans think humans are above all other life forms. But take away society, laws, civilization, weapons, etc. We are the easiest prey in the Forest.
