Snakes playing dead? I’ve never known that ever actually happened in nature!
Yes, discover in this post two types of snake that play dead when threatened! Amazing!
The snake actually stuck its tongue out. As if the snake learned how to play dead by watching cartoons. Also the fact that he thinks he has to be upside down to look dead. Those rolls are hilarious!
But wait a second… OMG!
There is also a snake behaving like this in South Africa. It’s called a rinkhals, and it’s a surprisingly common snake. The only difference is that, unlike the hognose, the rinkhals is a highly venomous spitting cobra. Oh look a dead cobra! Check this video out:
These snakes playing dead are absolutely awesome and some kind of terrifying, especially concerning the cobra.
