'Outback Hunters': Man Bit By Thrashing Crocodile

Mick Burbidge got ahead of himself on "Outback Hunters," and it nearly cost him a lot. With the croc captured, but not fully subdued, Mick put his hand on the side of the crocodile.

The thrashing beast managed to sink its teeth into his hand, drawing blood. Mick snatched his hand away before any serious danger occurred, but there was another danger lurking potentially beneath the skin.

As the show explained, a crocodile's mouth is full of dangerous bacteria. Even a small bite can lead to amputation and even death. The danger comes because the power of the crocodile's bite digs the bacteria so deep into the flesh, according to Animal Planet.

See what dangers lurk with the "Outback Hunters" every Sunday at 11 p.m. EST on History.
