A doorbell camera has captured the frightening moment a man was bitten by a snake.
Oklahoma man Jerel Heywood was visiting his mate on Sunday when the attack happened.
The vision shows Mr Heywood walking up to the house and opening the screen door.
A nanosecond later, a snake – which was wrapped around the porch light – jumps out and bites Mr Heywood’s head.
It’s understood that the snake was non-venomous and other than taking a course of antibiotics, Mr Heywood is OK.
The snake wasn’t so lucky.
A neighbour, who heard the commotion in the moments after the incident, came over with a hammer and, as CNN reports, pummelled the snake to death.
