This is the moment when a daring amateur herpetologist allows himself to be bitten by a wild snake to educate people about reptiles.

In another clip, the delivery man from Gainesville, Florida holds a Gulf Saltmarsh snake that bites his lip and makes it bloody.

The animal lover says the snake has "no bite pressure" and "really weak jaws," which rates the bite one out of ten.

In the last clip, David is sitting with an iguana on his lap before presenting his forearm and moving it towards the animal.

He has large cuts on his arm after the animal bit him and explains that the animal “did a great job” and “probably needs stings”.

The man has a passion for everything that snakes and claims his motivation for making the shocking videos is to show people that snakes aren't really that dangerous.

He said, “Most of the bites I take, especially the snakebites, aren't really painful. The last thing I want to do is overdo it and demonize the snake.

“The truth is, snakebites don't do much harm. I took an iguana bite once and it hurt and left a scar. & # 39;

The devout Christian David claims that his beliefs shaped much of his passion for animals.

The delivery driver from Gainesville, Florida wants to educate people about queues

The delivery driver from Gainesville, Florida wants to educate people about queues. He also let an iguana bite him and said it hurt and left a scar.

He said, “My motivation is not sadistic. I want animals to be cared for, and I want people to be good stewards of God's creation. & # 39;

David compared himself to famous zoologist Steve Irwin and said he loved snakes and every one of my bite videos.

He said that he "initially finds the bite doesn't hurt very much" adding, "It's a bit sensational and it definitely gets attention, but I never want to bring it overboard."

David said, “I really love animals and I am around them, but I am there for people's hearts and minds.

“I want them to be changed and educated about snakes. It's an ideological game and I plan to play it. & # 39;

He has been catching poisonous snakes for about five years and has improved his skills along the way.
