A daring teenage boy in Australia earned the nickname "snake boy" after pulling a large snake from the undercarriage of an SUV.
Video uploaded to Facebook by Yogi McDougall from Queensland shows the teen Oli Wardrop pulling the lengthy snake from underneath the vehicle before leaving for school.
The teen wrestles with to grab the snake by the head as it begins to slither its way up and into the vehicle while his father lay on the ground holding a hook and grabbing the snake by the tail.
"I've got the head," Wardrop eventually proclaims.
He then proceeded to pull the snake out with a gloved hand placed firmly around its head, as he carefully place the snake in a large bag.
Onlookers congratulated Wardrop for his bravery and skill as he was rewarded with a handshake from his father.
"That's my boy. Been wrangling snakes since he was five," his father said.
What did Mariska Hargitay say?
Whatever, I smoked a copperhead with a bootheel this morning at the farm.
I remember a radio news report one weekend. An Indian snake charmer was getting to know his latest cobra. Probably reincarnated as a Democrat.
First Rule of Snakehandlers: Know Your Snakes!!!
Apparently the boy and his dad figured this was a non-venomous snake or one calm enough to be handled, even without wearing a shirt or long pants.
Could you explain your comment about Hargitay? Thanks.
It was a joke, because she is on a show called SVU.
I still don’t get it, but if you post a picture of her, it’ll be cool.
“Apparently the boy and his dad figured this was a non-venomous snake...”
I’ll bet it could give you a nasty bite.
