A trainer named Dan Beck had a firsthand encounter with the insides of a gator’s powerful mouth. As a rule of thumb, it’s a bad idea to put your hand inside a gator’s mouth. Alligators do not hold much loyalty, even if you raise them since they have been hatchlings. And it’s not their fault. If you touch the wrong part of the inside of their mouth, they have to snap you and do a death roll. It’s natural.
Announcer Albert Lucas tried to take the entire routine in stride, but the audience was not buying it.
