Maximo shows us just exactly why it’s never a good idea to let your guard down around a crocodile, especially when that croc is 16-feet-long. The massive saltwater crocodile was being teased from overhead to go for a hat that the founder of St. Augustine Alligator Farm, where Maximo is kept, was holding out. It didn’t appear that Maximo was going to bother humoring him, but then he launches for it, effortlessly jumping from the water and into the air.

If you want to check out this modern day dinosaur defy gravity, just head down to St. Augustine, Florida and track the big guy down.
