For the patrons of Vietnam, surviving a region populated by so many poisonous snakes is an ongoing struggle that results in thousands of deaths yearly.

A clip of one of the country’s large carnivorous reptiles slithering its way into someone’s home, recently went viral. The footage depicts a woman sleeping with a baby on a hammock while the snake crept dangerously close. Luckily for the woman, she jumped up and grabbed the baby just in time. If she had slept for a little while longer, she and the baby might have become dinner for the giant predator.
