For people with arachnophobia or fear of spiders, meeting the Spider-Tailed Horned Viper will be their worst nightmare. As if spiders are not scary enough, God decided to make this terrifying creature to make us shit our pants with terror.
The Spider-tailed Horned Viper or Pseudocerastes urarachnoides may look like a real bad Halloween prank, but it is not a hoax or a hybrid created from a mad scientist’s experiment gone wrong. In fact, the “spider” on its tail is not a spider at all.
The tail of the viper has numerous barbs or spindles in it that resembles the look of a spider’s legs. It also has a pea-sized protrusion the looks like a spider’s body. What’s more is that the snake can make its tail spindles move in a way that a real spider will move making for a very convincing deception.
The deadly creature contemplating the next horrors it will make…
Aside from using its spider-like tail to lure small prey, the Spider-tailed Horned Viper is a master of deception and camouflage. Its grainy or stony looking scales make it barely recognizable and perfectly hidden in its habitat which is the rocky mountainsides of Iran. This deadly combination of mimicry and camouflage make it a formidable hunter.
Watch the Spider-tailed Horned Viper in action in this video below:
I certainly hope never to come across this snake if ever I go trekking in Iran! What do you think of this deadly creature?
