Jessica Alba had a scary encounter with wildlife this weekend.
On Saturday (September 19), the actress took to Instagram with a video of her posing for photos at what appears to be a park of some sort. While doing so, however, Alba gets caught completely off guard when she notices a rattlesnake near her foot.
“Hey, Jess, we should get one without your mask in portrait mode,” the person holding the camera says in the clip, which shows an unsuspecting Alba walking around before looking down just in time to see the five-foot rattler in front of her. “Ooh, s—t!” she screams before quickly walking away as the snake remains stagnant.
"There's a rattlesnake, right there," the cameraman says, as another woman yells, "Oh crap, it's a rattlesnake, get the hell out of there."
“When u unknowingly walk over a 5ft 🐍 rattle☠️🙀🤯.... 🛑adult language,” the 39-year-old captioned the frightening video along with a close-up shot of the reptile.
Considering the situation could’ve had a terrifying outcome, fans took to Alba’s Instagram to express how glad they were that she got away from the snake unharmed.
“Wooooooooooooooow oh heyell no. Thank God it didn’t bite you. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽” one fan commented on the video.
Another concerned user added, “If he hadn't said ‘let's get a pic w/o mask on portrait mode.’ You would have never looked down & would have walked right over it. He saved your life.🥺”
