snake playing dead

This is certainly something you don’t see very often and I don’t think the guy taking the video below ever expected to see such a wild and awesome thing happen.

The man in the video found a snake in his backyard. As he picked the snake up and took a quick video of the snake, he noticed something strange. When he placed the snake down on his lap, the snake appeared to ‘play dead’. The kid placed the snake on the ground and in an instant the snake rolled over and played dead again. Time and time again, whenever the snake was touched, it would play dead.

I personally have never seen such a thing, but it surely is a pretty cool thing to see. The snake obviously felt threatened and as a defense mechanism against predators, it plays dead. Sly move by a sly little guy!
