Alligator Almost Bites Off Livestreamer’s Hand

A livestreamer trying to get the perfect snap almost had his hand bitten off by a 12-foot-long alligator.

As Jay Young and Charles Wieand filmed for The Wild Charles Show at the Colorado Gator Farm, USA, they were in with a 900lb gator called Bruce Almighty.

As part of their educational video at the beginning of May, Jay – owner of the rescue centre – followed the huge beast around with a selfie stick filming up close.

Suddenly the 22-year-old reptile flicks its surprisingly flexible body back and tries to bite down on Jay’s hand who fortunately manages to move at the last second.
