Guy cuts down a tree to discover a snake hidden inside!
This is an unusual surprise! The weird creature almost looks like a worm but the truth is it is an eastern indigo snake which is a species of large nonvenomous colubrid snake native to the Eastern United States.
It is of note as being the longest native snake species in the U.S.
The reason why it looks so gross and almost unrecognizable It’s because severing the spine of any creature will cause the entire body to spasm.
The figure of speech “run around like a headless chicken” is based on this fact.
