A video has gone viral of a man attempting to release a black mamba. He nudged the snake out of a bag but as the snake escaped it made a 90-degree turn and made a beeline for the snake catcher.
The snake darts out at the man and narrowly misses him before slithering away.
Jason Arnold reveals what happened when he released the snake.
"I was filming from my haunches, gently tapping the snake in the bag to redirect its movements toward the opening. It eventually headed that way but did a 90-degree turn as it exited and darted straight at me like an arrow, mouth open, ready to bite anything in its path...
That was the closest I've ever come to being bitten, without being bitten."
