Watch as a GoPro falls into a pit full of rattlesnakes

Michael Delaney has shot a lot of videos of snakes. His YouTube channel shows footage of rattlesnake dens in Montana and even one of rattlesnakes dancing.

But nothing is as close up as the GoPro footage Delaney shot last week when snakes strike and the camera fell into the den.Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 8.50.32 PM

The first snake strike, at 2:02 doesn’t bring down the GoPro but a few strikes later from different snakes and the camera lands right amongst all the other snakes.

Even those who like rattlesnakes may feel a little anxious with the close-up shots. Screen Shot 2015-10-13 at 8.51.23 PM

From the hovering over the snakepit to the actual strikes, Delaney doesn’t show any fear.

As one commentator noted:

Hanging out with this guy would be so annoying. Having to listen to his balls of steel clack around any time he moves

Another commentator was convinced that Delaney demonstrated some very Canadian sense when it came to retrieving his GoPro using a hockey stick.

+Battle Goose Also, I wouldnt be surprised is this video is in Canada, isnt it mandatory for all Canadians to carry hockey sticks with them at all times?
