Jessica Alba had an up-close and personal encounter with a critter that would make anyone jump out of their skin.
Alba, 39, shared a video and photo on Instagram Tuesday showcasing the terrifying moment she nearly stepped on a rattlesnake while she was posing in front of a statue.
“Hey, Jess, we should get one without your mask in portrait mode,” says the man operating the camera in the video.
Alba starts to take off her mask when she looks down to see the reptile just feet away from her own feet, before exclaiming, “Ooh, s—!”
Thankfully, Alba was able to quickly put some distance between her and the rattler.
“There’s a rattle snake, right there,” the person behind the camera says, while another woman goes on to yell, “Oh crap, it’s a rattle snake, get the hell out of there.”
In addition to the video, Alba was able to safely show the snake in question, and wrote in the caption, “When u unknowingly walk over a 5ft 🐍 rattle☠️🙀🤯…. 🛑adult language.”
A few days prior to her snake encounter, Alba was in tears on her Instagram, but it was not because of a terrifying experience with a reptile.
In the first photo, a teary-eyed Alba, 39, hugs Honor while the duo has their backs to each other in the second photo — proving Honor is in fact slightly taller her famous mom.
“The moment you realize your number 1 baby is taller than you 😩😩😩,” the L.A.’s Finest star captioned the sweet shot.
In July, the family of five enjoyed a family getaway to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, with Alba sharing images from the trip on social media.
“Family vacay in #jacksonhole #wyoming — wow! What a magical place 🙌🏽✨,” Alba wrote.
