Damn, nature!

A terrifying moment has been captured on camera in Lampang, in northern Thailand.

The video, filmed by a car travelling behind a motorcyclist, shows a snake lunge at the motorcyclist as he passes.

The motorcyclist’s sharp reflexes seem to serve him well, as he swerves slightly to avoid the snake and manages to avoid being bitten.

While the motorcyclist’s lucky escape is going viral, there’s no word on whether or not the snake was lucky enough to avoid being run over by the trailing car.
