Let this be a lesson to put down your phone and watch where you’re walking!

Tim Malone was in a parking lot in Oklahoma. He had his cell phone in hand, not paying attention to where he was walking when he encountered a snake.

Surveillance video shows him approached the building, and then he jumped in sheer panic as he realized he was stepping on a snake.

The 4-foot-long bull snake sunk its teeth in, then slithered away. Malone wasn’t hurt, and luckily the snake was not venomous. He even helped release the snake into some woods nearby.
