An epic photo surfaced of a black snake slithering over a sniper’s gun barrel.
The photo surfaced during a training exercise at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. It contained an image of a black snake slithering across a sniper’s gun barrel way out in the woods where the black snake is very common.

Thankfully, the snake isn’t venomous, though. This is nothing more than a southern black racer, which is common to wood lots in states like Alabama, Florida and Georgia. The snake never knew the sniper was there.
