It may look like Ben has a death wish, but this young explorer knows exactly what he's doing! His process entails distracting, grabbing, then wrestling the slithery serpentine.

Watch the video above to see exactly how Ben captured this 10-foot python – and learn some fascinating facts about this Burmese bad boy!
