“Zombie Snake” going viral for playing possum

News

A snake is going viral for playing possum. Wildlife officials are nicknaming it the “Zombie Snake.”

Similar to a possum, officials say the snake will often roll onto its back, convulse and then lie motionless with its tongue hanging out. 

Sometimes, the snake will hiss and inflate its neck like a cobra to try to scare away predators.

Despite looking creepy, it’s actually harmless.
