Forget rain, sleet and snow -- a mail carrier in Tampa, Florida had a run in with something a lot more dangerous.The mail carrier was bitten by a rattlesnake that was hiding inside a mailbox. The 66-year-old carrier had to hit the snake several times to get it to let go.

Despite the bite, the man continued along his route, delivering mail for 30 more minutes before seeking help. The good news is that he's expected to make a full recovery.
