- Nick Bishop shares a short clip how one can divert the attention of a snake
- He used a stick to touch the snake's tail
- Luckily, he got to scramble away from the snake after the reptile focused on another direction
Kami found a post on India.com which showed a short clip of Nick Bishop, diverting a rattlesnake's attention.
Also known as Nick the Wrangler, he was merely sitting on the forest floor, when the snake came out.
It headed straight towards him.
At first, he distracted it using his bare hands, which didn't work because the snake crept up his thigh.
He then used a small stick and painstakingly made light touches on the tail.
This worked and when the snake was already behind him, he quickly scrambled away.
He was lucky enough because the snake turned its attention back to him, but he was already a bit far from the reptile.
