Forrest Galante dresses in a crocodile wetsuit to feel more at ease with the wild predators he is swimming with in June 2016. Daring filmmakers find a unique way of filming crocodiles – by wearing crocodile wetsuits to swim up close to the terrifying predators. Wildlife biologist Forrest Galante and cameraman Mark Romanov journeyed to the clearest waters and adopted the unusual strategy of mimicking a large adult crocodile by wearing a special scaly wetsuit. The intense footage, filmed in June this year, shows how their tactics were successful with the team intimately swimming next to six colossal crocs.
