You gotta love fluorocarbon fishing line. Not only do the fish have a hard time seeing it, so do hundreds of Youtube viewers who were caught up in the latest reptile prank. This one involved “Bikini Girl” and a rubber cobra (Naja hevea madeinchinaensis). You may have already seen it, but if you haven't here it is.

The stunt took place at a lake in Robertson Western Cape, South Africa as a girl was sunbathing when a cobra seemingly makes a beeline for the girl. At just the last second, the girl turns around and captures the snake right behind the head, and proceeds to throw it back. It was unreal from the start to the finish as the rubber snake was moving too fast up the slope and to the right of the video you see a guy reeling the snake in with a fishing rod. At any rate, it is the viral reptile video of the last few days even though the reptile was rubber. No reptiles were harmed in the filming of this prank. 


According to the anonymous prankster, he and his brother had intended to scare his sister, but it didn’t work as she was prepared. 

“It was a prank on my sister. Yes it was pulled via fishing rod with fluorocarbon line,” the prankster told the Daily Mail.

“My brother and I was (sic) trying to scare my sister but it seems that she was prepared, seeming that I grew up catching snakes along that river since I was just a boy and she would sometimes join me. She did not handle it as we expected her to, very much impressed!”
