China Gibson filmed his terrifying encounter with the tiger snake, which can be seen dangling from his left trouser
A man has been left paralysed with fear after discovering a tiger snake had slithered up his leg and inside his jeans.
China Gibson was untangling wire underneath his Ute in Moulamein, New South Wales’ south, at the weekend, when he got the shock of his life.
‘This f***ing great tiger, the dogs chase it up my leg when I’m not looking,’ Mr Gibson said.
In the video, which Mr Gibson filmed himself, the venomous snake’s tail can be seen dangling out the bottom of his left trouser.
To buy himself some time, Mr Gibson used a clamp on the snake’s head to prevent it from biting him.
‘I’m clamping it off, but he’s hitting the crown jewels,’ he said.
Mr Gibson said he had no other choice but to deal with the situation himself.
‘No one to call, so wish me luck,’ he said.
‘Let’s see if we can get this c*** out of here.’
Mr Gibson counted to three, before he ripped the snake out of his jeans, jumped up and ran.
‘F***ing Christ almighty, f***ing snakes, f***ing Jesus Christ,’ he shouted as he fled.
‘He’s alright he’s all safe.’

The tiger snake, an extremely venomous species, is found in the southern regions of Australia.
A tiger snake’s bite can be fatal.
Alongside his video, Mr Gibson said both he and the snake escaped the terrifying encounter without injury.
‘Bloody snakes. Be nice to them and they want to climb up your leg and scare the s*** out of you,’ he said.

‘I do not know if this bastard went quiet when I clamped the jeans tight on his head because he could not breathe or if he was trying to work out a way to open his mouth to bite me.
‘All’s fine. No bite marks and have got my breath back.’
Since sharing the footage to his Facebook page on Sunday, the video has amassed more than 915,000 views.
