Outdoor activities are supposed to be fun while experiencing nature is supposed to be relaxing and refreshing. Put them together and people should have the best time of their lives. But what if going on a nature adventure means danger?
A reptile encounter can be pretty scary most especially when it is an alligator or a crocodile that comes popping in front of you. These creatures are usually found in lakes or swamps so if you’re going on those areas, be very alert or you might end up being the next special alligator meal.
A ziplining woman nearly became a lunch when an alligator leaped out of the pond and tried to bite her.
A terrifying video of a near miss encounter between a woman and an alligator has re-emerged just recently. In the state of Florida, where alligators are also a native to its lakes, ponds and swamps, a woman passing overhead a lake through a zipline was almost bitten by an alligator.
The video was captured by one of the zipline instructors who were then testing a zipline station that has never been put into use before. The pond was actually known as an alligator pond and a zipline was set up over it to make the ride more exhilarating.
The thrill can be really dangerous, however, and it was proven when a woman took her turn to slide down the line. Wearing her full protective gear, the woman sped through the other end but an alligator suddenly jumped and snapped its jaws close to her feet.
According to Little Things, the woman’s fellow instructors waited anxiously on the other end of the line, waiting for her report. While it was a close call, the female instructor managed to cross the line safely.
