Texas man catches fish, finds shockingly large snake clinging onto it

A Texas man recently got more than he bargained for when he lifted his fishing rod and found a snake feeding on his catch. 

The man, who goes by the Twitter handle TEXAS WILD BOY, tweeted a video of the unusual haul on Sunday. The 18-second clip shows a black-and-brown snake biting into the still-breathing fish. 

"The things I go through with bayou fishing," he wrote. 

At the end of the video, the man turns the camera to himself, allowing viewers to see his hilariously deadpan reaction. 

"Bruuuh, SEE THIS IS WHY I HATE SNAKES!!! THEY ON THE GROUND, THEY IN THE WATER AND THEY IN BE IN THE SKY IN THEM AIRPLANES, NO ONE IS SAFE," one Twitter user replied. 

"The only choice: Square up with the snake to see who gets the fish," another wrote. 

As of Thursday afternoon, the video has been liked more than 215,000 times and shared over 54,000 times.
