Rattlesnakes are, by nature, terrifying snakes. That’s why this bro, Nick The Wrangler, deserves mad respect for handling this situation the way he did.
We don’t see what happened before the camera turned on but we’re led to believe that Nick sat down in the woods to take a break and out of nowhere an Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, the largest and deadliest rattlesnake on the East Coast, crawled out from under some brush.
He tried to distract the snake with pine needles but the rattlesnake then crawled right onto his lap.
Somehow, Nick was able to distract the snake enough with pine needles to get it to crawl away and the entire time he kept his cool while knowing that snake could deliver a lethal bite at any moment.
