There are very few predators that are feared and hated as much as snakes are. However, their unique and amazing abilities often make them fascinating creatures. Now, a video showing a reptile's hilarious antics has left social media users laughing out loud.
Shared on Twitter by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan, the short video shows a snake grabbing a rubber slipper and slithering away with it while holding its head high. "I wonder what this snake will do with that chappal. He got no legs. Unknown location," Mr Kaswan wrote in the caption of the post.

The video reveals how, after a group of people noticed the snake approaching their house off-camera, one of them decided to throw their pink rubber slipper at it. The reptile instantly grabs the footwear in its mouth and makes a hasty exit with its head raised up.
The video instantly took the internet by storm. Mr Kaswan shared the clip on Thursday evening and since then it has accumulated more than 229,000 views and over 7,200 likes.
In the comment section, while some users came up with assumptions about the snake's action, others came up with hilarious reactions.
"I guess bcoz of the taste or smell of rubber slipper, I have seen if few times. Might be it feels it was his prey!" wrote one user. "Cinderella - The Serpentine Edition," said another.
A third user wrote, "It's amazing...it might possible that the snake think that a prey." A fourth explained, "It looks like he's building something of his own, maybe a fort he looks very pleased with himself, dancing off like that, head way up in the air, practically prancing which that is very hard to do with no legs prancing." "Fast and furious," wrote another.
