Drama Queen

Drama Queen

Snakes don't have any eyelids (just a clear scale over their eyes), so they can't shut their eyes to play dead. And though you can't really tell by the way I'm holding it, this snake is playing dead. It's body is completely flaccid, its tongue is lolling, and if you look closely at the corner of its mouth, you can see it has even managed to squeeze out a couple drops of blood for dramatic effect.
