In case you didn't already know it, you don't want to mess with rattlesnakes.

A Montana man named Michael Delaney was capturing some footage of the snakes on his GoPro when the reptiles got feisty and began hissing at him. One of them was so annoyed that it managed to swipe the camera and put it into the pit with its other snake friends.

Fortunately, Delaney was resourceful enough to get his GoPro back using a hockey stick. He even had to wipe the venom off of it before he could use it again, which is perhaps a strong reminder that he may want to think twice before getting so close to angry rattlesnakes again with camera in hand.
