Mess with the bull and you get the horns. Mess with the python and you get the teeth.
A lesson the man in this video shot in the Florida everglades learned in an instant while out hunting down an exotic and invasive snake.
Watch what happens when he attempts to grab this Burmese python behind head. Also, listen to his response. Would act the same way if you'd been bit?
You can't tell if he's overly happy or just in a state of shock. That's a lot of nervous laughing. Maybe he should run for president?
At any rate, hopefully he learned his lesson and will grab snakes nearer their heads in the future. This python had just enough room to turn around and nail this guy.
