Crocodile bites Go-Pro camera

You might call it a meal's eye view.
That hungry American crocodile, whose four-metre length truly earns his affectionate name of 'Big Boy', has become a minor celebrity after trying to chow down on a Go-Pro camera belonging to Chris Madden, a volunteer at Florida animal sanctuary Everglades Outpost.
Madden says he didn't mean for the big guy to try take a chomp of the camera - he had it put in a tough PVC housing to try get some first-person footage of the giant reptile in the hopes of getting more attention for Outpost.
Here's the full video, posted to Madden's YouTube channel:
As soon as the camera hit the water near the croc, it went into full-on feeding mode.
He spat the Go-Pro out, but it was damaged during the ordeal - although incredibly the damage was actually covered by insurance.
