Arabian Sand Boa Is The Funniest-Looking Snake Ever!

It’s not the first time we marvel at something hilariously odd here at this site, but this Arabian Sand Boa really is something to look at. It might just be the derpiest animal alive. Reminds of an 8-year-old’s drawing that came to life. They must be extremely successful predators, because their prey is too busy laughing to run away.

    It hides under the desert sand with just it’s eyes showing.
    When prey comes along, a quick flick of the head and they are lunch…

    The whole body is well adapted to it’s environment, and survival / hunting methods. Derp is as Derp does…

    I know someone like Mr. Bleak in real life… he feels compelled to dispense irrelevant trivia to people that have shown zero interest in it. I studiously avoid his company.

    I married someone just like Mr.Bleak. He is interesting, awesome, and great in the sack for the very reason that he does have an interest in “trivia”.

    The snake is adorable and so is Mr. Bleak. As a biologist I relate to both.

    Comment sections are only worth reading for the interesting comments by people who know stuff. Thankyou Mr Bleak for your insight.

    Except that I am now terrified of sand.

    Having kept the cousin, the Egyptian Sand Boa, they are great fun to feed…
    They stay completely buried during the day, and at night, when food comes out to forage, bang!
    Gone in an instant. A fascinating instruction on adaptation.
    Simply wonderful creatures.

    Another great one to study is the Calabar Python, which isn’t a constrictor in the true sense of the Python/boa family, but instead uses the walls of the burrow of the prey, to simply squish the prey to death. Timid and primitive, nonetheless well suited for the environment.
