Snakes are one of the most feared predators in the wild. They are venomous, powerful, and deadly. They are nothing to mess with. But some people are not afraid of them, and won’t take any crap from a lowly serpent. In India, this man was bitten by a snake and his reaction was to bite its head clean off.

The man, simply known as Sonelal, was apparently in the fields, tending to his cattle when the slithery predator snuck up on him, and bit. Infuriated, Sonelal picked the dang thing up and chewed its head off.

“The snake bit me, so I held its head and chewed it off. It died, then I brought it back to the village,” Sonelal told the local news affiliate in India, “Then I tore off its head again.”

Damn. Message to all would-be attackers, do NOT mess with Sonelal. He has no regard for your life, or his own apparently.

Doctors were amazed that the farmer survived the incident. Sanjay Kumar, the doctor who treated Sonelal, was shocked when he was told about the incident. Biting the head off a snake can come with a ton of complications, especially if the snake is poisonous. “I’ve never seen such a case in my life,” Kumar said.

People around Sonelal believe he was under the influence of drugs, which may have explained his insane reaction. Either way, dude bit the head off a potentially deadly snake and lived to tell the tale. I wouldn’t doubt anything.
