GoPro cameras are not on the menu for this alligator in Florida

A photographer in the Florida Everglades managed to capture the inside of an alligator's mouth after it tried to eat his GoPro. Luckily for both parties, the gator didn’t like the taste of the GoPro and let it go with little damage. 

Photographer Bobby Wummer was shooting in Ochopee in Florida, USA, when the curious alligator decided to inspect one of the best action cameras a little closer. The GoPro was attached to a 12-foot extension pole, suspended just above the water close to where the alligator was lurking when it launched it for it. Lucky, Wummer was far enough away from the alligator to not get attacked although people on Facebook have accused him of putting himself in danger.
