There are some people that are extremely grossed out at the notion of skin, and admittedly, they have every reason to be. The skin is created by three layers of tissues, the epidermis as the outer layer, the dermis in the middle and the subcutis as the base level. All of them are pressed together to create the largest organ in the human body. The subcutaneous tissue serves as a cushion, the middle layer constitutes of the building blocks of our skin, being home to nerve endings, glands, blood vessels and the roots of the tiny hairs all over our body. The epidermis however is made up of part living part dead cells which alert the immune system of any antibody trying to attack our body.

This being said, the outer layer of our skin is a graveyard to bacteria and dead skin cells and that makes it extremely gross. Snakes, similar to humans also shed their skin, but they do it in a more dramatic fashion. Although humans rarely notice the shedding of their skin, snakes leave the whole derm-armour behind them in transparent hollow ropes.

This video is absolutely astonishing! After finding a snakeskin in her yard, this homeowner decided to approach the culprit. When the snake attacked, it caused a jump scare that surely made you flinch! That is a very rare animal moment caught on camera in the town of Cuba, Alabama!

Here’s what Linda Munoz, the owner of this video, had to say about this unusual encounter:

"I had found a long snakeskin under the steps of my house in Cuba, Alabama, and I always keep anything like that to give to a friend who works for Auburn University's Environmental programs. A few days later, I was in the yard when Mr. Snake (a non-poisonous rat snake) came crawling by, heading for our barn."

“I am always taking videos of nature to send to my two kids...one of which lives on Long Island, NY and the other in Portland, OR. That is the reason I said ‘This is going to be a good one’....I knew my kids would like it."

“I am a glass artist (mosaic and fused glass) and I won an award in February for ‘Best Environmental Community Project" given at the Environmental Educators Association of Alabama. My work with children involves creating mosaic benches and panels with environmental themes. I also have a mosaic installation in the United Nations' Worship Center in NYC. So, you can see, I have a real respect and love for all creatures, even the most feared in our midst!"

Good thing that snake only hit her phone! Hopefully the phone wasn't damaged too bad, although a new cell phone on Amazon could always be purchased if it broke!

        She doesn't seem to be a redneck, hillbilly, or a freak, so what's with the name-calling? Could it be true that it takes one to know one & you know them all? Nah, you got this one wrong....

          Seriously? I am guessing you are too if you can't recognize it when you see it. He 'bitted' my phone? Unreal.

            What she said is "he bit AT my phone." Alabama dialect is hard to understand.

            even if that's what she had said, it would be a normal "startled" reaction bonehead! it probably would have soundeded betterer to you had she thrown in a few curse words, right?!... 😂 get a job! preferably not as a news critic because you clearly don't understand dialects or that an up close and personal encounter with an angry bullsnake is pure awesomeness! #jealousmuch
