Just when you think you’re a decent fisherman, a creepy creature has to come along and one-up you.
In North Carolina this weekend, a man named Jason Dickerson captured this eery footage of a snake pulling a good-sized catfish out of the water.
Falls Lake, where the video was taken, is located outside of Durham, North Carolina, and is a popular recreational spot with over 12,000 acres of undeveloped reservoir.
Dickerson said he was testing out a brand-new kayak and noticed the water snake swim past him, fish in mouth. We’re guessing he observed the snake until it made this majestic and awful landing on the rock to swallow its prey.
Hey, snakes gotta eat, too, but there’s something just too unsettling about the calmness of this snake.
