This is the moment a crocodile clamped its jaws around a trainer's head during a stunt that went awry at a Thai tourist attraction. This guy is the luckiest person in the world to have survived; he'l never forget in his life! 

Screams can be heard from the audience in footage of the 27-year-old's brush with death at the Samut Prakan Crocodile Farm in Bangkok on Sunday.

It shows the trainer cautiously approaching the reptile before placing his head inside its gaping mouth - only for the deadly crocodile to suddenly snap its jaws shut and violently thrash the man from side to side.

Prince George of Cambridge, Son of Kate & William

William and Kate's baby will be known as Prince George. Kensington Palace said in a short statement:

'The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son George Alexander Louis. The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.'

The name seems to have been chosen in honour of George VI, the Queens's father, but royal sources say the baby's names are not supposed to be symbolic but that the couple just like them. It seems they had little choice in picking this name.

George means farmer or earth worker. It was the 12th most popular name for boys born in England and Wales in 2011.

Snake Massage for Only $80 in Israel

Snake Massage- For just $80 you can have slithering reptiles such as California and Florida king snakes, corn snakes and milk snakes, wriggle down your back and up your spine and across your face, giving you deep-tissue massage.

An Israeli health and beauty spa, Ada Barak's spa in northern Israel, is offering this creepy service to its customers. Barak figured out several years ago that heavy king and corn snakes produce a relaxing kneading sensation.
