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?
