A spunky 17-year-old who had his right arm partially torn from his body during a vicious alligator attack, told FoxNews.com that he wants the alligators head.
"I'm going to use it for a prosthetic armrest," Kaleb Langdale said in an exclusive interview. I want his head."
The Florida teen lost his right arm below the elbow Monday night during an alligator attack. He said he survived by offering the 11-foot alligator his arm, and used the skills he learned by watching TV shows like "Swamp People" to survive the brutal attack.

Well... go ahead, Jump right in there and get it. Maybe you could use your superior skills and offer him your other arm to distract him.
I’m with you. This young mans attitude and courage will do him well in life. God bless him.
Alligator’s territory. Hoping he loses HIS sh*t-for-brains head this time around. There are too many stupid people inhabiting this planet and frankly we could stand to lose a few.
I was hoping for a PETA member to go down there in the river and talk to the alligator but that’s wishful thinking..
There’s an 18 inch alligator head for sale on Ebay.
Must have seen “Happy Gilmore.”
What about the mean-spirited people? Could we stand to lose a few of those?
Yes, I did.
Just hate the blood lust. Animal does what he’s supposed to do and if you get hurt in the process then it’s off with his head. Yeah that will show them who is king.

PETA is also inhumane.

There's a 50-acre lake behind my FL church, and in one week, the F&G boys removed a 12-footer and two 9-footers. The smaller ones look like driftwood.

Just to be clear - the alligator is already dead.
That river literally swarms with alligators.
The cynic in me suspected that this kid had something to do with his own misfortune from the moment I set eyes on the story.
So he wants its head? Go git ‘em, champ!
That scene from Monty Python’s Holy Grail where the knight who lost his limbs in a duel threatens to bite the other guys kneecaps off comes to mind...
Called him Amos Moses."
He did what he's supposed to do. Now the kid's going to do what he's supposed to do.
Ahhh. It's good to be King of the jungle.
