Key Points

  • This article covers a video displaying a man casually throwing dozens of snakes around.
  • The man starts by reaching under a metal barrier to get to the snakes, he gets scared they will get hurt so he moves them with his bare hands.
  • We do not recommend doing this unless you are trained and very experienced in handling snakes.

Not everyone gets excited about touching or handling snakes. In fact, some people are afraid of these reptiles. One man didn’t hesitate to remove dozens of snakes from a road area and someone nearby caught the entire thing on video!

The man starts by reaching under a metal barrier to get to the snakes. They are on the side of the road and he’s likely afraid that they will wander into the road and get hurt. So he decides to take matters into his own hands, literally.

With numerous snakes needing to be relocated, the man hops the barrier to the other side. The concrete area where the snakes are located is right next to a tropical forest. Picking up the snakes in his hands, he flings them back into their natural habitat.

Picking Up Snakes

While some people may handle snakes gingerly, this man grabs them like they are just anything else. He picks multiple snakes up with one hand, throwing them back into the greenery. It is unclear what kind of snakes these are. The surrounding area is tropical and warm with plenty of precipitation.

We just hope that the man knew what kind of snakes he was dealing with and knew enough to not get bitten. As he grabs the snakes, he doesn’t seem to worry about them being poisonous or dangerous. He flings them away so quickly that they didn’t have much opportunity to bite him.

Of course, we do not recommend doing this unless you are trained and very experienced in handling snakes.

Once the snakes were clear, the man hopped back over the barrier and went on his way. The snakes lived to keep exploring away from the road and we got to enjoy the amazing video of this good samaritan helping wildlife.
