These videos have apparently been around for a few years, but they're making the rounds again. This stuff is brand new to me and what this guy does is insane. Gary Saurage, owner of Gator Country in Beaumont, Texas, tests his theory that the best way to get up close to gators is to trick them into thinking you're just another alligator. He straps on his prototype gator suit and wades into a pond with 45 alligators and attempts to swim up close to an 11-foot gator.
Saurage and Gator Country have been featured on CMT's Gator 911, and on various wildlife shows on A&E, Bravo, and Animal Planet. Gator Country is the largest alligator adventure park/sanctuary in Southeast Texas. For more info on the park and their work, check out their site gatorrescue.com.
