Vet with dart gun v Crocodile: Guess who wins?

Thursday, April 8, 2010
So apparently this photo is the result of a veterinarian seeking to examine a crocodile. Having drugged the living fossil, the vet assumed it was safe to put one's arm down the croc's throat to retrieve the tranquilizer dart  he used to drug the animal.

Is it me or is the crocodile actually smirking? I think he's displaying the arm as a trophy and so he should, he totally faked out the vet!

Check out the to darts at the left of the picture. Lesson? You need four darts!
The good news is the arm was able to re attached to one Chang Po-yu's' body. This all happened in 2007 at Shaoshan Zoo in the southern city of Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

No smirking in this photo as Chang Po-yu's holds up four fingers to show how many darts he should use next time
Now, the title of this post asked, "guess who wins?" And I bet you thought the crocodile won, after he got the guys arm right? No. To get the arm back the crocodile had to be shot twice. Sad Face.

But wait! The bullets missed and the smirking crocodile was not shot! It's a win for the crocodile and the crowd goes wild!

True story, you can't make this kind off stuff up.
