Jackie Bibby, the "Texas Snake Man," has set a new world record for … sitting in a bathtub with snakes!
Bibby spent about 45 minutes in a see-through bathtub with 87 rattlesnakes on Monday, fully clothed, shattering his own record by 12 snakes just in time for Guinness World Records Day, which is on Thursday. A Guinness official certified the record, in Dublin, Texas.
Bibby sat in the dry tub with a pillow behind him, wearing regular clothing. The snakes were not defanged and still contained their venom, he said.The snakes crawled under his arms, between his legs and anywhere else they could slither, Bibby said. None bit him.
