Scientists Figure out How Snakes Can Fly!

Researchers in Florida have published an article describing how snakes could use their bodies to glide through the air.

The snakes are known as Chrysopelea paradisi, and they live in the trees of South and Southeast Asia. Sometimes, to get to other trees, they will launch themselves into the air and glide down.

Scientists at Virginia Tech strapped some motion cameras to 7 snakes and well you can guess what happens next. Check out the video here.
