THIS snake has perfected a cunning way of deterring predators – by playing dead. With an Oscar-worthy performance, the Eastern Hognose writhes around as if in sheer pain, whilst also emitting a disgusting smell. The snake even hangs its fork tongue out of its mouth to ensure the dramatic scene is fully believable. Texan local, Kenneth Gisi, stumbled across the distinctive snake when it was being confronted by a feral cat.
