See, the thing about alligators is they have these big jaws—and teeth

An alligator wrestler was bitten by an 8-foot-long alligator and severely injured while performing Sunday at the Cotee River Seafood Festival, authorities said.

Jeff Quattrocchi, 45, an alligator handler from Kissimmee, was in the midst of a performance at 1 p.m. when the reptile chomped onto his right arm. He was transported to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg by helicopter and later reported to be in stable condition. New Port Richey police Lt. Steve Kostas said Quattrocchi’s injuries are not life-threatening, but he is expected to undergo surgery.
