WTF Was That?!: A Real Snake With A Fake Spider For A Tail It Uses To Attract Prey

February 13, 2015

Warning: Spider eats bird at the end so if you're not into the circle of life you might not want to watch the video.

This is a video about the spider-tailed horned viper, a species of venomous snake native to western Iran that has a spider-like appendage at the end of its tail that it wiggles around to attract prey. Obviously, Mother Nature should be fined and/or jailed for even coming up with this. What's the deal -- you're just mixing the scariest animals together now? "Blame evolution." DON'T TRY TO SCIENCE ME -- YOU DID THIS.

Keep going for a couple videos.

Thanks to Jan, whose worst nightmares are officially reality.

    That's no imitation spider at the end of his body, that's his nut sack. Unfortunately for him, there is only one nut - probably why he is so protective over it...

    Wow, Nancy Pelosi's really letting herself go.

    What the fuck; I saw a gif of this and I thought it was some sort of symbiotic relationship between a spider and a snake. This is even more incredible!

    That is one sensual narration for one fucked up creature.

    Spidersnake, Spidersnake,
    Does whatever a Spidersnake can
    Waves his tail, over there,
    Catches prey just like flies
    Look Out!
    Here comes the Spidersnake.

    "The most evolved tail structure for hunting in the world of snakes"...uh there's more than one snake that does this? What is there an anaconda with a hamburger tail luring fat tourists into it's gaping mouth?

  • Captain Matticus, LP Inc.

    Fool me 6 times, Anaconda, shame on you!
    Fool me 7 times...

    When they find one with an iphone on its tail we're all in trouble.

  • Jenness

    Good one!

  • Meh

    Damn it, already hated snakes and spiders, but this is the end.

  • Prometeo

    They're learning... :O

  • Bling Nye

    Nature is amazing, why, I jiggle my ass to attract prey too.

    Milkshakes bring all the boys to the yard.
