Meeting wild animals can be surprising and dangerous. However, sometimes, these animals surprise us in the most stunning manner. A man would experience that exact wildlife encounter to terrify even the most courageous.

It all started when farmer and fisherman Gilberto ‘Chito’ Shedden was on the banks of Reventazón River. It was a peaceful day, but he had no idea that he was in grave danger. Right in his path, a huge crocodile was staring at him. His story is truly incredible!

Back in 1989, Chito was walking close to the river, when he locked eyes with a crocodile. But, instead of being attacked by one of the most terrifying predators in the world, he got friends with it. Wait, what? Yes, you read that right.

How did that moment end up with the man and the croc becoming best buddies? Wait until you see the whole story!
