A long time ago i was at the beach with my friend Sara and I took my glasses off since we were swimming. I looked out at the ocean and saw a dark blurry shape steadily moving along below the horizon.
I had no clue what it was but it looked weird and it was pretty far out in the water so I thought out loud “that’s a funny looking boat” and Sara just replied “Hannah that’s a person”
I hardly ever take off my glasses but when I do and I walk around the house with them off let me tell you it is a very surreal experience
An Eastern Hognose snake (Heterodon platirhinos) flattens itself and hisses loudly, in a defensive display, Southern Georgia, USA. If this doesn’t work, the snake may also “play dead”; flipping over, letting its tongue hang out, releasing a death like odor from the cloaca.
