If you were trying to think of fun vacation activities to do with the whole family, consider feeding an alligator a marshmallow from your own mouth. It's an easy way to stay cool in the summer heat, and it's definitely safe and a really good idea. 

Tourists on a swamp boat tour in a Louisiana marsh gave us the idea for this DIY adventure when they captured this footage of a man feeding two alligators pieces of chicken and marshmallows from his mouth. Good news: technically, the man didn't break any state laws (though it's against the laws of Jefferson Parish to feed the gators).
