A proposal is the most memorable moment of your life.

Hopefully because it’s one of the best days of your life. Obviously, you’d expect to live to tell the story.

For reptile keeper Billy Collet, the chances of survival were a hair worse when he decided to propose to his girlfriend in a crocodile enclosure.

He’s clearly skilled at his job working with these animals at the Australian Reptile Park, but there’s always a chance the reptiles will go wild.

But, apparently, his girlfriend is just as fearless as him.

When he told her that she could come in to help feed them, she jumped right in without hesitation. But little did she know, his taunting the crocodile with food was really just a show.

Once he got the crocodile in the position he wanted, he turned around with a ring in his hand to his now fiancée, Siobhan Oxley, and popped the big question.

She immediately said yes, and the photographer started snapping photos. I wonder if she noticed the huge croc so close by. If I did I might have been too scared to answer!

“The last three years have been the best of my life… it’s been bloody good,” Collet said. Let’s just be thankful they didn’t actually end this moment with a bloody one. 

Please SHARE this crazy proposal with all your friends and family!
