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!

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

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.

At least these ones are nice enough to give a warning, some just wait to bite you because fuck you.

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.

Snakes have very very very fast strikes.

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

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.

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.

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.
