Please don't pet alligators from the side of your airboat

Posted By on Fri, Jul 22, 2016 at 8:01 AM

A Florida man showed zero regard for his limbs by reaching over the side of his airboat, and petting this bigass wild alligator. 

The video, which was posted to YouTube on July 18, shows this unidentified man handling (or molesting, as we call it in Florida) this gator, and obviously getting way too close for comfort. 



As we all know, it's all fun and games until that gator decides to taste your arm.
