Chris Hemsworth recently joined Instagram, showing off his backyard — and a new, scaly BFF.

Hemsworth snapped a selfie with a snake that was making its way through the grass of his backyard. Between all of his recent film work (In the Heart of the Sea, The Huntsman, Ghostbusters, to name a few), the Thor star still finds time to hang out with “the locals” in what he calls the “real Jurassic Park.” As long as he doesn’t get too close.

The actor’s next project, In the Heart of the Sea, finds his character, Owen Chase, fighting for survival after a large whale wrecks his ship in the middle of the Pacific. Acting alongside Tom Holland, Cillian Murphy, and Benjamin Walker, the Ron Howard-directed film is out Dec. 11.

This marks the only snapshot the Australian actor has shared to his offical Instagram account, which already has more than 310,000 followers. To follow Hemsworth, go here.
