Man loses balls to hungry croc

This week's valuable lesson: Balls should be kept well away from hungry crocodiles.

This week's valuable lesson: Balls should be kept well away from hungry crocodiles.

Talk about getting caught with your pants down.


A 70-year-old man from Zimbabwe has lost part of his testicles after being attacked by a crocodile when crossing the Chivake River naked.


Local man Jonah Maturure said he’d taken off his trousers and put them in a tomato box above his head before he crossed the river.


He’d crossed the same spot in the same river several times before, but this time, a giant croc was waiting for him.


“I was not suspecting anything... But when I was almost in the middle of the river I was attacked,” he said.

“It mauled a chunk of my buttocks before attacking my manhood, tearing my testicles into shreds. The skin covering my manhood was partly torn but I quickly put my thumb in its mouth... It then grabbed my hand and I could hear my bones cracking.”


Realising that he wasn’t going to save his personal possessions, he threw his tomato box in the river.


That move may have saved his life, and his manhood.


The beast loosened its death grip and swam straight for the tomato box. Maturure escaped, bleeding profusely from his nether regions, and ran to a nearby house for help.


The battle was just one of a string of crocodile attacks recently in Gutu, an area with a sparse population of just 78 people per square kilometre.
