Tentacle Snake Catching Prey

High-speed video taken by biologist Kenneth Catania shows how the tentacled snake uses a body fake to trick fish into fleeing toward the snake’s head, instead of to safety. The video also shows how the snake aims its strike to a location where it expects the fish’s head to be instead of tracking its movement. credit: Vanderbilt University
