In Florida, it’s no big deal seeing a crocodile lying around on a golf course. Florida people are used to that kind of stuff.

Some Florida people may have become a little too comfortable with the sight of giant predatory reptiles lazing around in the grass.

Giancarlo Stanton? What are you doing messing around with that crocodile???

Better question: Who is the fool holding the camera? At least Stanton is behind the croc. The other guy is right in front of it.

What if the croc gets ticked off? What if it doesn’t want its picture taken? What if that’s the Sean Penn of crocs?

Even if it’s not ticked off and is just lying around there waiting for dinner to arrive, that’s still a bad situation.

A wise old swamp guy in a fricking hovercraft once told me, never mess with an animal that only sees you as dinner.

Just horrifying.
