Here’s as close as you’ll ever want to get to being struck by a rattlesnake.
Rattlesnakes don’t like being bothered. And apparently, they like having a GoPro camera stuck in their face even less. This video gives an extreme up close and personal view of a rattlesnake strike.
Hopefully this is the closest you’ll ever come to being bitten yourself!
What an awesome thing to capture on camera. I’m assuming, and really hoping he had this camera on a long pole of some kind. I’ve always really like snakes, and have no problem with non-venomous ones. But the rattlesnakes and other dangerous ones I have no problem giving a wide berth to!
It’s really amazing how fast these things are. That’s why it’s best to just leave them be. It only takes a few seconds for a rattlesnake to really ruin your whole day.
