This is the scary moment a huge python tried to bite a man while he was relaxing on a hammock.

The man was scrolling through his phone while the snake sized him up menacingly in Sa Kaeo province, Thailand on December 25.

It even reared up and bit his jumper sleeve, that was dangling down.

Fortunately, his friends were nearby to catch the snake and take it away to a nearby field.

The filmer, Artit, said: ‘I could hear the python hissing from where I was standing.

‘I tried signalling to my friend but he just didn’t seem to be aware of what was happening.’

The man eventually heard his friend and curled up in the hammock to stay safe while they captured the python and released it to the wild.
