This proposal was very scary

Billy, an employee at the Australian Reptile Park, proposed to his girlfriend in the crocodile enclosure.

He met her almost three years ago and describes her as "the girl of my dreams".

Aw. Bless him.

He then proceeds to invite her into the enclosure and coaxes the crocodile out of the water to only a few feet away from them.

His girlfriend, Siobhan, remains at the edge of the pen until Billy walks up to her and gets down on one knee.

It’s all very romantic but we don’t know about the enormous crocodile hanging out behind him.

He looks hungry, but thankfully Siobhan seemed to be hungry too, for the ring.
