The audience at a state run circus in Vietnam got exactly what they paid for on Saturday night when a crocodile bit a trainer on the face when he placed his head in its mouth during his routine.
According to news reports, the croc was a stand-in for the usual star of the show who had passed away earlier in the day.
Obviously unhappy at having to work so soon after the passing of his pal the grieving croc decided to take it out on those forcing him to perform for the crowd.
The trainer was only wounded in the incident and is now he is being treated at a hospital in Henan province.
