Flying snakes, caught on camera
"Not only are they snakes, but they can "fly" -- flinging themselves off their perches, flattening their bodies, and gliding from tree to tree or to the ground."

" . . . non-equilibrium trajectory dynamics and kinematics"

I have seen the big snakes here - stretched out horizontally on a tree branch drop several feet to a lower branch to turn themselves around to head in a different direction, but so far I haven't seen any of them fly. Thank Goodness! Some of them are 10 or 20 feet long!
