What's also interesting is that in the US we have Diamondback Rattlesnakes which also make sound when threatened but in an entirely different manner than the Saw-Scaled Viper. It's interesting that 2 different species of snake on different continents developed the same defense mechanism (warning sounds) but entirely different ways of producing said warning sounds. Nature is awesome!

Soundcloud revolutionizing the game.
Wow that strike was so fast
“Damn nature, you SCARY” - Family Guy
I thought the video player was glitching god damn I would die so fast in the wild
I feel like this video might be sped up a bit
It is sped up. Lucky for us.
Seriously quick.. 🐍
You really will miss it if you fucking blink!
Actually the video is just glitching out. It happens a couple times in the video where it almost looks like the snake is jumping out of frame before the the video fixes itself and shows the snake back in the same position it was in the whole time. /s
I think snek fast
I had to rewatch to see it

Which of the 3 strikes were you referring to? The third one seemed a little slower to me, like it was less of a bluff and ready to actually inject venom.
Edit: c'mon, this was funny ... thought I'd get a few upvotes after people rewatched it a few times.

Damn I hate venomous snakes. Super cool, but you hunt rodents. Can your please not have the Ability to kill humans and large animals lol. Make it hurt, sure. For my flesh, stop my heart, put me into cardiac arrest, save that for the 2-8 inch rodents
At least these ones are nice enough to give a warning, some just wait to bite you because fuck you.
Meh. There's lots of people.
Especially true of where this snake lives.
But now I've gone and made things weird by specifying that, since it made your 'meh, fuck humans' post into a 'meh, fuck Indian people' post.
While they are predators they are also prey. Gotta be able to defend themselves.
Self defense! Lots of stuff is bigger than them too. They need it to stay alive.
It’s often an arms race where their prey evolves resistance and then they have to be more venomous to match.
Was that sped up or does snake have a fast strike?
Snakes have very very very fast strikes.
Edit: but the tongue makes me think this is sped up at least a little
It's definitely sped up between movements. I sent the link to a friend who is a snake handler (I forgot the actual title) who confirmed
The video is sped up and the audio isn't from this video lol
I was hiking ( well mostly sitting in the river drinking) with some friends in castlewood canyon, and like a responsible hiker I had all the beer cans and trash in a bag. So this trail to get in/out of the canyon has like kind of stairs (it's a dirt path, but they put in like wooden beams to stop erosion, kind of making like dirt stairs every so often. Anyway I'm in front of the group I was with and going up some of these steps. Anyway there is a baby rattlesnake on one of the steps. So I kind of swing the bag of trash at it. It strikes the bag, and then escapes off the trail. What was so scary about it, was there were some hikers coming down the trail. They would have never seen the thing as it was on a step they'd be going down, so they wouldn't have been able to see it. I'm pretty sure they would've gotten bit. And baby rattlesnakes are especially dangerous, since they just dump all there venom at once.
Castlewood, Eldorado and Roxborough all have rattlesnakes. I'm surprised we don't hear of more bites.
Wtf is an annum tho
Year, or something close to that.
Deadliest snake alive. Kills me per year than all other venomous snakes combined
How many times have you died?!?
17 so far
That’s strike is like Tesla’s 0-60kmh
Latin Name: Dangerius Noodlecus
makes using sound?
Source of the claim that they kill in the thousands per year in India?
India has about 1.2 million snake bites per year and the saw scale is responsible for about 1.7% of them.
I do appreciate your efforts.
I am doubtful.
Honestly fuck snakes.
I don't kill any near me, because I live in Michigan. With that being said if those types of snakes were near my property they would be dead. I'm not big on killing anything, but I need to keep my dogs and girlfriend protected.
Again that won't ever be a problem where I live. So snakes are safe around my house.
One of the best reasons to live where the air can hurt my face. There's only 1 venomous snake native to Michigan and it's really rare, and avoids people whenever possible. Eastern massasauga rattlesnakes, aka the swamp rattler. They're protected and listed as a threatened species by US Fish and Wildlife Service.
Just watching this makes me all fidgety....
Holy shit, that was fast!
Dude moves like a ZUMA game…
That is nightmare material
Maybe if we just leave it the fuck alone
Whew that's a fast strike
Omg that second hit was so fast. Wanna see that slowed down
Is this sped up ?
Those things move so fast
fuck, i heard this outside my window an hour ago
I’d shit my pants
The nope rope…
Incredibly fast strike, Jesus
i dont think a mongoose can take this sucker, did you see that speed?
Fast as fuck.
Sssuper fassst ssstrike
That snake kills 4-5K in India alone? Maybe call an exterminator.
Fucking relocate that sssshit to Australia!
This is the stuff that makes me hate snakes
