Snakes Chase Baby Iguana

In this clip from the BBC series Planet Earth II, Sir David Attenborough narrates a life-and-death action scene. On Fernandina, one of the Galapagos Islands, most baby marine iguanas are eaten by racer snakes as soon as they hatch. Of course, enough iguanas survive to lay more eggs. Will this one?

It gets pretty intense. If you prefer, you can watch the Benny Hill version. Planet Earth II will air in the United States beginning January 28th. -via reddit

This is nature; it's amazing and horrifying.
The filmmaking here is superb. Although I happened to see this first via Twitter, I'd certainly classify this as "neat" for the camera shots alone. Fascinating.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
