Have you seen Chechen president Kadyrov catch a huge crocodile?

The images are impressive. There’s the Chechen president stalking a crocodile, then swooping down in a flash and pressing its jaws shut in a vice-like grip. But lingering thought after the screen goes blank is not about 39-year-old Ramzan Kadyrov’s heroics but this question: so is it staged or real? What’s doing the rounds again […]

The images are impressive. There’s the Chechen president stalking a crocodile, then swooping down in a flash and pressing its jaws shut in a vice-like grip. But lingering thought after the screen goes blank is not about 39-year-old Ramzan Kadyrov’s heroics but this question: so is it staged or real?

What’s doing the rounds again on social media after its first stint in October 2015 is Kadyrov’s video wrestling a huge crocodile.

Watch video:

Честно говоря, не думал, что так быстро догадаетесь, кого держу в воде. Был уверен, что большинство скажут про крупную рыбу. Но это, действительно, крокодильчик. Такой послушный и добродушный. Конечно, если позволить, откусит руку по локоть. Но я не пострадал! Огромное всем спасибо, кто отгадал и не смог отгадать! Главным судьёй конкурса был Председатель парламента ЧР Магомед Даудов. Он сообщил что победителем стала @g.i.l.095 По условиям конкурса она награждается футболкой команды "Терек" с моей дарственной надписью. И, конечно, в День Чеченской женщины будет преподнесён красивый букет! Поздравляю! #Кадыров #Россия #Чечня #Крокодил

Kadyrov is a self-vowed fan of Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, who himself has been shown doing similar stunts in such videos. Kadyrov is also said to be socia-media savvy and boasts a 1.2m-strong following on Instagram, where he regularly posts pictures and videos of himself with celebrities and animals of all sizes and shapes.

The Russian republic’s leader is the son of Akhmad Kadyrov, the former Chechen president who was assassinated in 2004.
