A Terrifying Desert Encounter

Biology professor Emily Taylor (@snakeymama) tells us the story of that one night she was alone in the dark and felt the presence of something she was totally unfamiliar with. Now, a woman who tracks rattlesnakes is not someone who panics for no reason, but as the story unfolds, it not only gets scarier, but also becomes more and more believable from the way she tells it as a scientist.

She eventually found out what was stalking her, but the question remains: would she have been less scared if she knew what it was all the time? That's what she says, but she's a fearless field biologist. Your mileage may vary. Read the whole story at Twitter. -via Boing Boing

That's what I thought it was. I've heard one a few times in my life. It is a most awful sound they make. I've never been close enough to see or smell one though.
