Scarlett Johansson is a Snake Expert!
ScarJo isn't afraid of wild animals

Scar-Jo became a bit of an expert on snakes after growing close to the slithery critters on the set of her recent flick We Bought a Zoo.

In the film, Matt Damon plays a widower whose new house comes with a zoo, where the animals are looked after by none other than Scar-Jo. The movie required the actress to get up close and personal with a range of wild animals and she said she absolutely loved mixing with the exotic creatures and even handling dozens of slithery reptiles! She told You magazine, "We had to recapture an escaping shipment of all kinds of exotic snakes, such as pythons and anacondas. You don't go on to a film set knowing you're going to put 70 snakes in a bucket and think this is a normal job. But you do it, you get in there.”

So how exactly do you err… get in there? "You just pick it up and throw it – or gently place it – in a bucket. If you don't want to pick it up yourself, you can always bend a wire clothes hanger and use it like a hook to pick it up," explained the actress. She even said that she would be able to pick up a rattlesnake in the wild. Wow!
