According to, about six to seven percent of alligators fall victim to cannibalism. The cold-blooded body of Donald Trump Jr. managed to escape those statistics Sunday in Broussard, Louisiana, though, after jumping into a swamp on a bet.

“This is what happens when someone bets me a good sum that there’s no way that the guy from New York City would swim in a gator infested swamp/bayou down in Louisiana. Easy money!!!” Trump Jr., 40 years old, wrote in the Instagram post’s caption.

Trump Jr. has taken a liking to posting pictures of his outdoor escapades in the past couple of weeks—like traveling to Louisiana for the state’s attorney general’s annual gator hunt and going horseback riding with his very unamused son in British Columbia.

Unfortunately, no amount of beard growth and guided wilderness tours will be able to detract from Trump Jr.’s need for validation, from his father or from the public. The president’s son recently posted comments from Instagram followers calling him a “DILF.”
