Tiger snakes on the mainland have black and yellow markings like a tiger but in the cooler climates of Tasmania, where they became separated a few thousands of years age they have evolved in this black form.

 

This one is practicing for a circus I think!

You should see a boa constrictor on a rope: they wrap their tail around the rope, drape their body into a series of S coils and wiggle their whole body back and forth rapidly.

They scoot down that thing like they're swimming in water.

 

It always amazes me just how agile animals without limbs can be.

Our rat snakes, for instance, wedge their scutes (belly scales) in between ridges in tree bark and can climb straight up to the top.
