Snake slithers across US military sniper’s rifle in stunning photo

Even a snake didn’ t break the focus of just one U. S. military sniper within Alabama.

While conducting a 1-173 Infantry training exercise, a the southern part of black racer snake slid over the barrel of junior U. Ersus. Army National Guard sniper Pfc. William Snyder’s rifle. The workout was performed at Eglin Atmosphere Force Base on April seven, according to the Alabama National Guard.

Apparently, the particular sniper’ s camouflaged ghillie match even hid him from the unexpecting snake.

“ Our snipers are conditioned to remain perfectly still for hours at a time when in position and remain unseen to enemies and even wildlife, ” the Alabama National Guard published in a Facebook post.

Luckily, black racers aren’t venomous, though they will bite to defend by themselves .

Snyder was not immediately available for opinion when contacted by Fox Information on Wednesday.
