For most people, poking one of the world’s largest snakes with a short stick is not a smart choice. The intelligent thing to do might be observing the green anaconda from a safe distance, taking pictures, or simply running in the opposite direction as fast as your legs can take you.
Not so for this man, who is finally making up for not landing that role as Victim #2 in 1997’s Anaconda. Thankfully for him, anacondas are not venomous—which would be overkill for a snake that already can grow up to 17 feet long and weigh over 200 pounds.
You might want to brace yourself for this video, it does include a jump scare.
