Are you ready for your palms to turn into a pool of sweat? This was a little too close for comfort, and it will twist your stomach into knots, but it proves that rattlesnakes are not out to harm us.
The video was posted by Nick TheWrangler on his YouTube channel and it was almost his last.
The footage shows Nick taking a rest from searching for rattlesnakes, but just as he sits down, one finds him.
“I heard a rustle in the brush next to me,” Nick says. “I take a better look to see an Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake crawling towards me, so I just sat there as still as possible.”
Eastern Diamondbacks are listed as one of the top 10 deadliest snakes in the nation, and this one wanted a really good look at Nick.
“This was a really close call,” Nick Wrote. “I was definitely out of my comfort zone, but by God’s grace, I wasn’t harmed.”
Take a look at the intense stare down in the full video below:
