    Nice work Greg. It shows how active they are as hunters.
    It's interesting to see how they use their tongue to detect scent just as terrestrial snakes do.
    I wonder if there's any modifications in the tongues of aquatic snakes like this.

    Beautiful snakes. I love watching ours hunt when we put in new feeder fish for him! He eats so fast once he's got it too.
