Ross Kananga is a Jamaican crocodile farm owner and one-time stunt-performer who contributed to the 1973 James Bond film Live and Let Die.

Behind the scenes

While searching for locations in Jamaica, the crew discovered a crocodile farm owned by Ross Kananga, after passing a sign warning that "trespassers will be eaten." The farm and its reptilian denizens were put into the script and also inspired Mankiewicz to name the film's villain after Kananga.[1] Notably, Ross Kananga suggested the stunt of Bond jumping on crocodiles, and was enlisted by the producers to perform it.[2] The scene took five takes to be completed, including one in which the last crocodile snapped at Kananga's heel, tearing his trousers.[1] [1]
