South African Girl Catches A Speedy Cobra With Her Bare Hands

Rumble / Funny & WeirdLots of pranks show up on the Internet on daily basis. They vary wildly, from pouring water on somebody’s head, to snake attacks. You have to be unafraid of snakes if you want to watch this video as a girl catches a speedy cobra with her bare hands!

This stunt happened at a lake in Robertson Western Cape, South Africa. A young girl is sun tanning and chatting to a friend off-screen. A cobra seemingly makes a beeline for the girl and unexpectedly strikes. In the last second, the girl turns around and captures the snake right behind the head. Then she throws it back towards the lake.

This video was ridiculous from start to finish. The obviously rubber snake was moving too fast up the slope and to the right of the video you can see a guy reeling the snake in with a fishing rod. Thousands of Youtube viewers were caught up in the latest reptile prank.

You either have to be an expert prankster or an avid fisherman to notice that something is pulling the obviously fake snake along the ground. According to the anonymous prankster, he and his brother intended to scare their sister, but it didn’t really work, as our heroine was prepared.

"It was a prank on my sister. Yes it was pulled via fishing rod with fluorocarbon line," the prankster told the Daily Mail.

"My brother and I was [sic] trying to scare my sister but it seems that she was prepared, seeming that I grew up catching snakes along that river since I was just a boy and she would sometimes join me. She did not handle it as we expected her to, very much impressed!"

In another video, a conservationist spends his spare time wrestling and capturing huge pythons that have invaded his home state. Ruben Ramirez, 41 is fascinated by snake hunting and visits the Florida Everglades four times a week to remove some of the 15,000 Burmese pythons that now call it home. Since the year 2000, pythons have been officially recognized as an invasive species and have effectively colonised parts of the Florida Everglades National Park. Once caught, he hands most of the pythons over to the state authority for euthanasia and research. But he also keeps some of the snakes for his educational facility which he runs from his home. These images, taken over 2014, give an oversight of Ruben's best catches.

Apparently, there are many people who would dare to catch a slithering crawler with their bare hands. An unusual video from Australia of a man catching a shovelnose shark with his bare hands. In the clip, which was filmed on the Central Coast, the man wades towards the fish at his feet and then bends down and scoops it up.

If you’re not impressed just yet, take a look at this giant albino Burmese python swimming with a girl. This eight-year-old Burmese Python is named Sumatra, she has been to over 500 birthday parties and many schools, she has been around kids since she was a baby, she has never killed anything she even likes our dogs and cat.

      They're in South Africa. He'd already caught it and killed it. Duh. He's been catching snakes since he was a young boy. My ex was like that. He was into everything. She would go with him catching snakes. She knows how he is. She IS prepared for anything.

    Ive never seen a real snake move that fast. It also doesn't wriggle side to side, as snakes do to propel themselves. Snakes also (at least typically) will only attack something they think they can swallow, or something they feel threatened by. And then we look at the shadow... Ha. startling, nonetheless.

    A Cobra attached to a fishing rod and reel ... A snake doesn't travel like that and you could see after she caught it, it didn't move and was made of rubber .. When she slung it back still no movement .. She was aware of this prank and had it played on her before ... Otherwise, she would have come out of that bathing suit.

    Fake!! It is being pulled by something like a fishing line. Cobras don't move like this plus when she throws it, it lands on its back and doesn't move. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEto1-ZTbd4

    this is totally fake. It is a toy that is attached to string and reeled in, a prank toy. You can see the shadow of the person reeling it in. Plus, do you really think the snake would've just charged at her? Or not do anything when it was caught? Or not move once she tossed it out? THE BULLSHIT SNIFFER STRIKES AGAIN

    Snakes can't move in straight lines. Also, you can see the shadow of the fishing rod.
