  2. "Snake Uses Tongue to Lure Prey" …like Mick Jagger does to lure concubines…

  3. the music just adds creepy to such beautiful mysterious creatures called snakes. . .

  4. "It appears to be mimicking an insect" Um…so do the snake and toad ever touch tongues together? 😛

  5. Whoever gave the puff adder its scientific name – Bitis arietans, definitely had a sense of humour

  6. That lizard was like, let go off me, bitch! Let me go!! turns around and bites the snake 🌚

  7. The lizard was a real savage. Despite being bitten it still bit the snake back!

  8. Couldn't these observations be extrapolated and applied to the human situation? If humans are animals, then why not carry out policies that favor the strong and eliminate the weak? Just a thought.

  9. What a sneaky creature 😉

  10. Sub to my deawing xhannel!
