The horrifying footage of a wildlife biologist Adam Thorn showed him screaming in pain after allowing a six-foot python to bite his arm.

The daredevil scientist from Australia later needed stitches in his arm after the python drew blood in the video recorded for a new TV series ‘Kings of Pain’.
In the footage, which was recorded for a new TV series, the huge snake can be seen laid on a wooden table.
As soon as the TV host, who is wearing a protective face mask, gets close to the animal, the python bites him. A man wearing a blue t-shirt eventually pulls the snake away as blood starts to come out from the scientist’s arm. The clip, which appeared on Mail Online, is part of History Channel’s new series “Kings of Pain”.
It follows wildlife biologist Adam Thorn and professional animal handler Rob “Caveman” Alleva as they get bitten and stung by some of the most dangerous animals and insects in the world.
In 1983, Dr Justin O. Schmidt began ranking stinging insects, which led to the creation of the Schmidt sting pain index. It measures the relative pain suffered by different types of stings.
Now, Thorn and Alleva are adding venomous bites to the pain index and ranking them on a 30-point scale with new categories such as intensity, duration and damage.
The series features the pair tracking the animals in their natural habitat, trapping them and then executing the bite, followed by their ranking of the pain results.
Pythons, the world’s longest snakes, do not possess any venom that is harmful to humans, as they kill their prey through constriction.
“Venomous snakes, on the other hand, kill their prey by biting and injecting venom through hollow fangs or teeth,” according to ReptileKnowledge.
Even though they do not attack humans by nature, pythons can bite and possibly constrict them if they feel threatened or mistake a hand for food.
