Don’t Tease The Crocodile

My Israeli friends and family have a ton of stories about trips they took after finishing their initial run with the army, but I can’t say that I remember any of them mentioning almost being eaten by a crocodile.Credit for the photo and accompanying news story can be found here.

“I began playing with it for a photo,” Mr Mashiah said. “I was pointing at it when it suddenly jumped up at me – I didn’t realise that crocs were so aggressive.”

“I was shocked – the animal clearly wanted to kill me,” Mr Mashiah, from Tel Aviv, told the Northern Territory News.

“One minute I was leaning over the boat teasing it for a picture. The next minute it burst out of the water with incredible speed … its jaws fully open. I was shaking,” he said.”

I suppose he has never been to Hamat Gader. I don’t remember Chazal saying anything about there being any special benefit to becoming croc food. Not very smart.
