Videos of zoo keepers and snake handlers dealing with scary animals like it’s no big deal are usually incredible to watch. This video, however, may leave you shuddering. The clip shows a huge and rather angry snake trying to attack Jay Brewer, the founder of The Reptile Zoo. While Brewer manages to defend himself from the attack, the clip may leave feeling scared.

The clip has been shared on the Jay Prehistoric Pets Instagram handle. The page is home to several videos of Brewer interacting with different reptiles. This one stands out though.

“Wayyy too close for comfort… this is a clip from the craziest IGTV I still need to post,” says the caption shared along with the video.

In the video, Brewer can be seen standing next to the snake when it suddenly tries to attack him. “See how smart this snake is,” he says in the clip. “The second I shifted my eyes off, she knew that I wasn't ready to jump… almost smoked me,” he says further, adding, “That was one of the closest strikes in a long time.”
