A Bunch Of Snakes Chase A Newborn Galapagos Iguana During Intense Planet Earth II Segment

November 8, 2016


In other anxiety causing snake news, this is a clip from the first episode of Planet Earth 2 featuring a bunch of racer snakes chasing a Galapagos marine iguana hatchling. Those snakes come out of nowhere. And right when you think it's lights out for the little iguana after an ambush, he manages to escape to higher ground and meet a friend. That was intense. That was also like a two minute horror movie. I experienced so many emotions. Mostly just hunger though. "Hunger is not an emotion." The kind of hunger that I experience is, it's more intense than heartbreak. Also I have never been more thankful that I was not just born a Galapagos marine iguana.

Keep going for the video, as well as Ozzy Man's worthwhile take on the chase, plus decent Benny Hill and Celine Dion 'My Heart Will Go On' edits.

Thanks to my pal Terry, who would have totally been a snake's lunch.

    Indy's nightmare!
    Also running on 4 legs is better than... well,crawling.
    I love how the other iguana at the end is staring at the running one,thinking: "told you better not fall asleep on the gravel"
