Snake Spotted Swimming Across American River

As if E. Coli wasn't bad enough, now a rattlesnake has been spotted slithering across the American River.

A kayaker captured the video seen below on Sunday.

While enjoying an afternoon on the river, Jonathan Carabba noticed the rather large rattlesnake near Howe and Watt Avenues.

After its dip, the snake made its way to shore - popping out of the water near some fisherman that Carabba had forewarned. 

As shocking as the visual may seem, it's not uncommon for snakes to swim.

It's important for river-goers to be aware of their surroundings in order to stay safe.
