Snakes Can Fly?! Oh Yes. But Not in East Texas Thank Goodness
If I told you snakes could fly, you would holler "B.S.!" But yet, snakes can fly, well, more like glide. Luckily, this is not something we will not see in East Texas.
So yes, there is a snake called the Paradise Flying Snake that makes it's home in Southern Asia, very far away from us in East Texas. They have the ability to "fly" to get to prey or just to get a change of scenery.
How are Paradise Flying Snakes able to do this? They have very strong muscles, for one, that allow them to traverse the jungle trees. They are also able to expand their bodies but spreading their ribs which allows them to glide up to 25 meters, or about 82 feet.
The video at the top from Discovery UK shows off how fascinating, and terrifying for some, this is. Again, these snakes do not reside in the U.S. or in East Texas so it's something we can admire from afar.
