The “Planet Earth” filming crew was recently shooting footage of hatchling marine iguanas when they got a terrifying surprise.
Although snakes are known to eat iguanas, they typically hunt for their prey alone. It’s part of their nature that we all take for granted. Slippery, sneaky loners…that’s how I’ve always thought of snakes, until I saw this video. What the crew caught on camera is a never-before-filmed snake behavior. Take a look.
As a small iguana runs up a rock, a pack of snakes springs from the shadows. Incredibly, this is the very first time snakes have ever been filmed hunting as a group.
