This story was shot/edited by Shannon Runyon for KIAH, Houston, TX. 39online.com I shot this on location in Costa Rica when early on a Sunday morning, I hopped on a boat with Jose who showed me not only will he tease, taunt and feed the crocs, he’ll kiss them on the nose. Don’t know about you but I don’t see dudes like this everyday :)[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJRoBfFH4EM[/youtube]
