Sept. 18 (UPI) -- An Australian wildlife enthusiast celebrated obtaining a new GoPro by nearly feeding the camera to a massive saltwater crocodile.

The video, posted to YouTube by Wildman Adventures, features full-speed and slow-motion footage of the hungry saltwater crocodile repeatedly attempting to chomp down on the man's new device.

"Thought I'd test out the new GoPro on the largest living reptile on earth, the saltwater crocodile," the uploader wrote. "Went pretty well!"

The man said that while he risked his camera for the footage, he was not personally in any danger from the massive reptile.

"Please note this GoPro was on a very long pole haha," he wrote.
