WATCH: Iguana Outwits and Outruns Dozens of Snakes to Live Another Day

Posted on

I don’t know about you guys, but I have missed David Attenborough’s voice blanketing me with the wonders of the natural world.

Thankfully, it’s back — along with the return of BBC’s groundbreaking nature documentary series Planet Earth. While the show has started to air in the U.K., Americans have to survive on clips for a little while.

One of the most recent nuggets BBC Earth has shared on Facebook is the battle of one lone iguana against dozens of hungry snakes. Watching this nerve-wracking, two-minute snippet is almost as hard as surviving the past 16 months of election coverage — but you can do it!

This battle of wits, speed and luck has some close moments, but we promise there is a happy ending … as long as you’re Team Iguana.
