A ziplining woman nearly became a lunch when an aligator leaped out of the pond and tried to bite her.
In the video below, a group of zip-lining instructors were testing out a new line that traversed a pond.
The pond was well-known for having alligators, which added to the exhilaration of the ride. Wearing full protective gear, one of the instructors hooked herself to the line and set off.
Her fellow instructors waited on the other side of the zip line, no doubt anxious for a report on her experience with the new line.
But what she didn’t expect was that an alligator was watching her from the pond.
She seemed somewhat relaxed toward the end, probably assuming that the line was a success.
“This video was taken as a group of zipline instructors were trying out a new zip line that passed directly over an alligator pond,” the filmer wrote online. “Needless to say, this new zipline route has never been put in service,” he added.
Although the clip was filmed in 2014, it has only just surfaced online.
