This is the incredibly bizarre and rare moment that a snake feigns death to deter potential predators.
Caught on film in Mission, Texas, USA by Eric Johnson, the eastern indigo snake exhibits to very unusual behaviour not normally associated with its kind.
When approached by Eric, the cold-blooded creature begins to squirm vigorously to get away but, realising it can’t, the snake stops dead, mouth gaping and contorts its neck to appear as if it’s broken.
The reptile remains limp and lifeless as Eric inspects it, but when the self-taught snake expert steps away it ‘comes back to life’, darting its tongue forward as if nothing is wrong.
Eric, also from Mission, said: “I have never seen anything like this before."
