Johani Mamid has filmed crocodiles in the past, but his most recent trip to the Crocodile Park in Broome, Western Australia almost ended up in disaster. While he’s a trained crocodile feeder, this reaction by one of the giant crocodiles was a surprise, as it leapt up to attack his drone. Fortunately, it was able to be flown away in time, just before the animal grabbed ahold of the drone, although plans may need to be changed in the future. Read more for the video and additional information.
One of the most dangerous parts of Mamid’s job is walking around the animal refuge to check the fencing, since the crocodiles will come out and try to attack them. So, his team goes in pairs and whenever one of these beasts comes near them, they just get whacked over the head with a bamboo stick. Sometimes, they grab on and then you’re surrounded by crocodiles.

We definitely do fear them because of the level of respect we have for them. They have the strongest bite force out of any animal in the world. Their teeth are designed to hold on and never let go,” said Johani Mamid.
