My buddy in college, Jorge, had a pet gator or caiman in his frat. One night after about 12 beers and a lot of 'mysteries punch', I thought it was a good idea to try and pick it up. Of course it bit me. From then on out I decided I would not try to handle anything with bigger teeth than me after I been drinking mysteries punch.
I also had an experience on a high school field trip when me and my buddies thought it was a good idea to drink a bottle of Robitussin DM, before we went to some zoo/museum. I ended up being wacked out, and hopped the fence of some animal enclosure, before my friends went in and got me. I don't think I have touched cough syrup since.
As you can see I understand what these kids were thinking. They were high on drugs and thought it would be cool to have a gator. Totally respectable in my book.
