California: A video of a zookeeper getting bitten by a huge python right on the face and leaving a blood-stained face has taken the internet by storm. The incident happened in California’s Reptile zoo when zookeeper Jay Brewer was trying to collect the white-spotted black and yellow striped python’s eggs for hatching. The video went viral after it was posted by Brewer himself on his Instagram page with the caption, “She GOT ME 🤦‍♂️ I take a risk so I can get the babies 🥚 in the incubator where it’s safe… in this case, I had to take one for the team.” Brewer is a breeder of reticulated pythons known for their color and pattern variations.Also Read - Viral Video: Indian Girls Dance To Barso Re At Times Square, Clip Has 12 Million Views.

In the video, Brewer was trying to retrieve the eggs of the python that was lying curled up around the bunch of eggs that were reportedly ready to hatch any time. Trying to distract the python with a metal stick, Brewer approaches the eggs but as soon as he keeps the stick aside and begins to detach the eggs with his hands, the huge python attacked Brewer and bit him right on his face.
