Anderson Cooper is dedicated to getting the full story, but he's also dedicated to learning more about animals. According to Teddy Hilton, these two passions came together when Cooper went swimming with Nile river crocodiles for a "60 Minutes" segment.



The news reporter donned a scuba suit and hopped in the famous river to get a closer look at the impressive predators. After admiring the underwater plants, Cooper and his expert escorts went into an underwater cave system in hopes of coming face to face with a crocodile.

Soon enough, the group caught a glimpse of a gleaming row of white teeth amongst the darkness. Cooper said the experience was beautiful and intimidating, especially since he and the croc both know the animal could've easily turned Cooper into a snack.

Everyone has to admit that thats brave. Going that close to a dinosaur-aged animal (in species age wise) in it's own habitat under water where humans are disabled about completely. Well good job. I would do it but still not everyone would.

I wouldn't do it, it lacks common sense.
To risk yourself for a noble cause is brave.
