HILTON HEAD, S.C. (WSAV) – One Hilton Head lifeguard can add snake wrangler to his resume.

On Tuesday, Hilton Head Shore Beach Service shared a video of one of their lifeguards grabbing a snake – with a shovel in hand – and drag it off of the beach.

“Today on Shore Beach Animal Planet, Aaron Johnston takes on a snake,” beach patrol said on Facebook.

It’s unclear what exactly happened when the camera switched off. But beachgoers seemed unbothered by the slithering snake.

Shore Beach Service said in their post that the snake was not poisonous.
