Jason McDonald from Colorado, disguised himself as the dinosaur before feeding the 500lb gator his dinner in this interesting footage. The 35-year-old even admitted he couldn’t really see in the costume and jokes he’d be having a ‘bad day’ if the predator came out of the water. “I was feeling nervous and it’s not very easy to see in the costume”
We can’t imagine the bizarre thought process going through Jason’s mind when he decided to climb into the famous T-Rex costume to feed the fearsome predator. But luckily for Jason, the alligator called Morris is a well-trained movie star, having appeared in Dr. Doolittle, among other features.
Jason’s reasoning? “I know it looks like we are teasing him, but he’s a chunky alligator so we make him work for his food to burn some calories.” He also adds that feeding the gators in the T-Rex costume is insanely hard, because vision is already difficult, plus the visor fogs up from the breathing and you can’t extend your arms all the way in order to gain some distance. T-Rexes have really short hands, you know!
