Video Captures Rattlesnake Swimming Across The American River [WATCH]

Look at this little nope rope go! It’s going to be hot all week, which means you  might be headed to the river. And if you are, make sure you keep an eye out for snakes. Because as you can see from this video, rattlesnakes can be found on the American River. And they are pretty good swimmers.

So, you know, keep an eye out. You don’t want to run into a rattlesnake, let alone one on the river. And, just to be extra safe, remember to wear sunblock and a life jacket in deep water.
