Posts Tagged ‘Public Warned of “Zombie Snake” in North Carolina!’

Not dead! NOT dead!

You’ve heard of the Walking Dead, but North Carolina officials are warning locals about the crawling undead. The state’s Department of Parks and Recreation has posted a photo on its Facebook page of a “zombie snake,” a reptile known for defending itself by lying on its back and pretending to be dead.

The Eastern Hognose, also known as a Puff Adder, is found as far south as Florida and Texas and as far north as Minnesota, according to ABC News.

Some have claimed the snake can shoot venom as far as 25-feet.

Department spokeswoman Katie Hall was quick to defend the snakes to USA Today. 

“We love hognose snakes,” she said. “They put on this really dramatic display, but it’s kind of adorable.”

Hey Katie Hall, I have some advice for you. Any possum playing dead serpent that can shoot venom 25-feet shouldn’t be compared to a Yorkshire Terrier puppy. Good God woman. Look at that thing, just pretending to be deceased only to pop up and shoot venom in your eyeball like a damned demon from hell. Kind of adorable my ass.

Chills, man.
