GoPro camera falls into pit of Rattlesnakes - video

A lot has changed about his approach to the deadly reptiles since then. For starters, Delaney wears shoes now. And he’s got a camera. Delaney, 33, is becoming famous for his visually striking, cringe-inducing rattlesnake videos. A recent clip of a rattlesnake den shot using a GoPro camera has racked up almost a million views on Facebook, with thousands more on Delaney's YouTube channel.
