A young tourist swimming near the bridge of Boca Paila, in the ecological reserve of Sian Ka’an, Quintana Roo experienced moments of anguish when onlookers started screaming that a crocodile was nearby.
Fortunately the reptile, almost twelve feet in length, was distracted by one of the onlookers who threw a plastic jug at the predator to scare it away.
The video was uploaded to Facebook by Manuel Cabrera, an eye witness who wrote:
“This happened in Boca Paila just moments ago, a tourist dove into the lagoon without realizing there was a twelve feet male crocodile in the water that is usually fed by local fishermen.”
He added that the reptile is well known in the area as an “expert stealing fish from inexperienced fishermen.” He noted that the tourist was saved by the fact that the animal was well fed at the moment.
Manuel Cabrera concluded: “People of the Sian Kan Ecological Reserve, it’s time to act, to forbid the tourists (and locals) from feeding wild crocodiles, and it might be a good idea to get rid of a carnivorous reptile of these proportions before it’s too late.”
