This is the heart-stopping moment a python tried to bite an animal rescuer who was trying to tame it.

The aggressive python had its mouth open while the man held on to the phone luring the reptile with his finger in Chonburi province, Thailand on November 26.

After a few moments, the python lunged at the man but he was able to evade it. 

Reptile specialist Jarephat Stijanteuk said: ‘Luckily I was able to guess the python’s jumping distance but even if it did bite me, I’m sure I’ll be fine.’
