Amerikanac Kristofer Gilete već 12 godina održava neobično prijateljstvo sa krokodilom Kasperom.
„Kada pliva prema meni, puštam mjehuriće i on to osjeća. Ponekad se spušta da se druži sa mnom! Ovaj put je legao preko mene“, napisao je Gilete na Instagramu.

I spent some time holding my breath on the bottom with Casper the alligator! When he swim over me I blow bubbles and he feels it, and sometimes he’ll come down to hang out with me some! This time he landed on me 😂 I’ve worked with Casper over 12yrs. He was not raised in captivity but is a rescued nuisance gator. Casper is a very calm and relaxed alligator and I know him and his behavior very well, but as always I remind everyone he is still a wild animal and an alligator, not a pet, and never try this on your own. Casper has never tried to attack me, but either way I’ve handled and caught wild alligators for over a decade and (hopefully)know how to handle situations if things go wrong, and they certainly do try when I’m out in the wild, never try this out on your own.

Trenutak kasnije ronilac je bio licem u lice sa ogromnim gmizavcem kao da mu daje poljubac u njušku. Međutim, Gilete je pozvao svoje pratioce da nikada ne pokušavaju da ponove to što je on učinio.
