If you’re a little bit squeamish when it comes to snakes, then look away now, because this video will amaze you.

The footage, which was captured by Press TV and Reptile Wonderland: Iran’s Wildlife, shows a snake camouflaged in a rocky landscape.

Looking at the picture, you more than likely wouldn’t be able to spot the slithering reptile hiding, just waiting to pound on its prey.

However, within seconds, an unassuming bird scoops down and lands on the rocks, totally oblivious to the sneaky snake curled up there.

Without missing a beat, the snake strikes and manages to latch onto the bird’s wing, as it desperately tries to fly away.

The bird can be seen going into a state of shock and flapping it’s wing as the snake doesn’t give up.
