I liked the part where it launched itself off of that tower. I`ve liked snakes since I was like 10 years old.

I thought there was a difference between flying and falling, guess not.

I realize this thing is not lethal to humans... I also realize it`s max size is about 4 feet long, and not that wide at all... But none of this would prevent me from dying of a massive heart attack if I saw this thing flying toward me. It wouldn`t even have to land on me. It`d just have to get close; I`d seize up and fall over on the spot.

No MMCD, in thousands of years, it`ll be the same size, if it isn`t extinct by then.

What the hell? That looks so fake, but still awesome.

In other news, ants can fly... Well "Glide". Anyone know that? I`m too lazy to search up the article, look it up yourselves.

although... give evolution a few thousand years and it`ll be sizes with anacondas no doubt, then we`re all screwed :) so looks like atomicskier`s comment is the most valid

LOL @ Ty`s comment.

I don`t know what I`d do if I saw a flying snake. That would suck if one landed on you while you were taking a stroll through the woods.

Does that mean flying snakes can hunt flying squirrels now?

<generic penis joke>

That is an amazing form of flight/gliding. I`m guessing that it uses it body as a sort of frisbee/helicopter blade hybrid, constantly moving its body to keep the leading edge of the... lifting force (cant call it a wing, can ya?) moving, generating lift.
