Chris Hemsworth has made his Instagram debut very unforgettable.

In his first photo – a selfie – the Australian actor is seen peering over a huge, slithering friend (or foe, depending on who you ask) in the background.

“Hangin with the locals in my backyard… the real Jurassic Park,” the 32-year-old captioned the photo of himself and a snake.

While the limbless reptile seems terrifying to us, action man Hemsworth doesn’t seem to be the least bit afraid.

It is unclear if the Avengers actor owns the snake, but he and wife Elsa Pataky did adopt a puppy in November last year.
