And down goes GoPro!

When you bring a GoPro into a rattlesnake pit, it’s best to keep your head on a swivel, because you never know when and where a snake just might strike. One Montana man learned that when he tried filming a den of rattlers and almost lost his GoPro in the process.

At around the 2:02 mark, one snake lashes out like an A-lister trying to ward off the paparazzi, and another quick strike brings the GoPro toppling right into the den. WAY too close for comfort.

Luckily for the owner of the GoPro, he was able to fish it out of the den with a hockey stick. Talk about some excellent stick work.
