We've all witnessed long, drawn-out death scenes in movies that take you out of the scene. The kind where they milk it for what seems like forever before finally becoming still. Case in point below:

Lights, Camera, Action!

Our Hognose snake must have gone to the same acting school as the fellow in the video above. The man shooting the video gently picks up the little guy and holds him in his hand for just a couple of seconds...


... then the snake leaps out of his hands and starts spazzing around on the ground in perhaps the greatest death scene ever recorded.



It's hard to express just how wild it looks with images, you need to watch the video for yourself to get the full performance.

 What is an Eastern Hognose Sanke?

An Easter hognose snake, also known as the Eastern hognose snake, is a species of non-venomous snake native to North America. Scientifically known as Heterodon platirhinos, it is characterized by its upturned snout, which it uses to dig in sandy or loose soil, and its distinctive defensive behavior. When threatened, the Easter hognose snake will often flatten its head and neck, hiss loudly, and may even feign death by rolling onto its back and opening its mouth. These snakes primarily feed on amphibians, especially toads, but may also consume small mammals, reptiles, and birds. They are found in a variety of habitats, including forests, fields, and sand dunes, throughout the eastern United States and parts of Canada.
