This is weird, ATS. I want to bring to here cause I know some of you here will get a kick out of this. Short article and short video.



Thanks to Animal Planet for bringing our attention to this snake's bizarre, unsettlingly realistic spider tail. It so closely resembles a spider, in fact, that when scientists first spotted it in Iran in 1968, they initially assumed there was a solifuge (a close relative of a spider) clinging to its tail.

Mother nature never ceases to amaze! What say ATS?

Sometimes, being bit by a radioactive spider doesn't work out quite right.
