This can’t be real…
Some nightmare type stuff right here.
Snakes are just so weird to me. I mean, they move better than most things across land and water but they have no legs…
And they get even more creepy.
They have the ability to move even after their head has been removed. This is because snakes have a long, slender body and a series of powerful muscles that allow them to move in a unique way. When a snake moves, it contracts and relaxes the muscles on the left and right sides of its body, allowing it to move forward in a wave-like motion.
So even after the head is removed, the muscles and nerves in the body continue to work, allowing the snake to move… for a short time.
Snakes heads can continue to move after it has been detached from the body. As a result, the snake’s head can continue to move and even bite even when completely detached.
This snake is seen with its head completely detached from its body. We don’t know why, but that doesn’t matter after the next thing happens. The body continues to move and it brushes its own missing head.
The head then gets triggered and goes into defense mode. It is seen opening its mouth and biting its own body while not even attached. And the body appears to recoil at the bite.
I don’t quite understand how the nervous system of a snake works, but that is some horror movie, unbelievable stuff.
So, the next time you cut the head off a rattlesnake in your backyard, remember… it can still bite you.
