It is not recommended to take a selfie with a crocodile!

A French tourist had the strange idea of wanting to do a selfie with a crocodile and got bitten on the leg.

We live in a strange world where social network addicts are looking to publish the most entertaining or amazing selfies that will have the chance to make the buzz, bringing global fame.

But sometimes some people are too disconnected from the real world and end up doing unintelligible things!

So a French tourist had the idea of standing next to a crocodile to take a selfie.

She was bitten on the leg during a visit to the Khao Yai National Park, north of Bangkok.

She was bitten deeply in the leg, but her days are not in danger, she was quickly transported to a hospital.

Selfie with a crocodile: what happened

A park official explained what had happened:

“She wanted to take a selfie with the crocodile that was lying in the stream. Surprised, this one bit her on the leg.

At this point in the park, there is a sign warning that a crocodile lives there and people can look at it from the platform – but I guess she wanted to see it closer.”

Now they’re going to have to add a sign:
“No selfie with crocodiles!”

Thai media published photos of forest rangers transporting our compatriot on a stretcher, with a thick bandage around his knee:

Settled in Thailand since a few years (with trips to Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia), I love this country and its inhabitants, the real country of Smiles! Sorry for any translation errors that may occur. Feel free to mention them in the comments, I will correct them. Thank you.
