A 17-year-old high school student from Illinois, United States, had quite an epic reaction when a herpetologist came to his high school zoology class to show students rare animals that had been confiscated from the illegal pet trade.

According to Distractify, Jalen Brooks completely lost it when a python was brought out.

Said Jalen:

"He pulled out a series of crazy reptiles that were honestly dinosaurs in my opinion.

"Then he pulled out the largest python I’ve ever seen and I lost it."

His classmate Jill Lojas then tweeted a video of Jalen's hilarious reaction to the presentation. 

The tweet went viral, garnering over 139,000 retweets and 247,000 likes. 

Not to mention, it did not take long for the memes to start flowing in. 

The newfound Twitter fame has even landed Jalen some A-list followers, including NBA star Stephen Curry.
