A 12-foot crocodile in your path would be scary at the best of times but this one proves it can tower over any human who visits its watering hole.

As menacing as the predator looks standing on its hind legs, the huge reptile is considered sacred by the local people in Bazoule village in Burkina Faso, West Africa and is simply reaching for the live chicken being dangled before it by the locals.

What magnificent pets they have!  And brave tourists, you won't catch me grabbing alligator tails no matter how "tame" they allegedly are!!  Scared!

It's standing on tiptoes/claws, forelegs at a delicate angle, head thrown to the back...looks like a dancer, a grotesque ballerina out of "Fantasia" like film; but no, I wouldn't like to watch a live performance!
