Creepy & Crawly Critters:  Snakedance

They were here even before the Dinosaurs appeared, and they remain with us today — tough and adaptable, patient and persistent.

While investigating life in an Oklahoma cave, Marty Stouffer discovers a pair of male Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes engaged in an extraordinary “combat dance”. Sinuous bodies swaying upright, the intertwined serpents clench and strain as they try to wrestle each other to the ground. All stages of this hypnotizing Reptilian phenomenon are seen for the first time.
