A Florida detective became a snake wrangler Wednesday when she received a call about a 9-foot-long yellow anaconda.

"Ms. Shaw you are cra-zy", he said in the video. "Or is he just shy?" There were a couple of times where the anaconda appears to try to strike her.

Officials say Shaw has experience handling exotic snakes, and it shows, as she expertly side steps and dodges the agitated snake in order to get it into a waiting bag.
