One of the coolest things about Google Glass is that we can see the world from other people’s perspectives in a way we never could before. Skydiving, bike riding and all manner of sports look different from Glass’ perspective. One view that most people don’t want to see, however, is being face first with a 5-foot long Black Forest Cobra as it rears up at you.

The snake wranglers at the Houston Zoo got some questions about how they handle their snakes and decided to use Glass to help us experience it. For people who dislike snakes, this video will probably confirm that fear. For people who did not mind snakes, being this up close and personal might change their mind.
