They are among the most hated and feared animals on the planet – only few people recognize their beauty. This documentary features some of Europe’s most stunning species, like the European adder, the nose-horned viper, the dice snake, the ringed snake and the Aesculapian snake. So watch out next time you’re walking in the park. After a winter safe in burrows, sometimes in bundles of hundreds, the spring’s warmth brings them back to life.
Explores every aspect of the snakes’ lives. How they mate, give birth, hunt and feed, move and sense the world around them – from the deserts of Namibia to the forests of the Amazon. Snake-mounted cameras show off their remarkable control and grace as well as the blazing speed with which they strike.
Why bother watching bad movies? Because every now and then you get a scene like this one from Deadly Prey (1987)
