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