In a bizarre incident captured on video, a man under the influence of alcohol decides to approach a group of crocodiles resting on dry land in a lake.
Video footage of the incident
The video shows the man approaching the crocodiles, seemingly not able to assess the danger he is putting himself in. The crocodiles find the man's behaviour threatening and move back into the water.
Possible dangers of drunken behaviour around crocodiles
While the incident may seem comical, it highlights the serious danger of irresponsible behaviour around wild animals. Alcohol can impair judgment and reaction time, making it much more likely for a person to put themselves in harm's way. Crocodiles, in particular, are known for their aggression and can be extremely dangerous if provoked.

Advice for staying safe around wildlife
Encounters with wild animals can be exciting, but they should always be approached with caution and respect.
It is important to maintain a safe distance from the animals and avoid doing anything that might provoke them.
If you encounter an animal unexpectedly, the best course of action is usually to back away slowly and give it plenty of space. And most importantly, never approach wild animals while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, as it can greatly increase the risk of injury or death.
