Rattlesnakes Attack A GoPro Camera! You've Been Warned

I am amazed by the diversity of snakes, from those who stay in the desert to those who roam the forests. There are those that can swallow a goat whole, to those that are venomous. Likewise, while I am fascinated by them, I would not want to be bitten or be constricted by any of them.

And so Michael Delaney provides us with an alternative solution for those who are interested yet at the same time frightened: Let the camera take the plunge. Michael Delaney used his GoPro camera to record a pit of prairie rattlesnakes (Crotalus viridis) out in the grasslands of Montana in the United States.

Warning: it will make you jump out of your seat.

These snakes are able to live in parched areas, wherein they search for empty prairie dog dens to stay in and survive during the winter.

It would be difficult to find these snakes outside their holes from September until March because they stay in underground tunnels and dens.

Researchers from the Northern State University noted that these rattlesnakes will stay in the same den every year since their young can smell the scent of the older snakes and follow their way back. Each den in South Dakota typically has 250 different snakes that tolerate each other -- from garter snakes to bullsnakes -- and can number as high as 1,000.
