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.
