Schleich - Snake Nest
Snakes like to crawl under stones and into crevices. There they are protected from predators and can attack their prey. So be careful when turning stones!
Some snakes wait motionlessly for hours for their prey. They have an organ that allows them to sense heat and detect when their prey is approaching.
Many species of snake like to creep under stones and into narrow rock cracks, where on the one hand they are protected against enemies, like birds of prey and on the other hand they can also wait for their prey and strike. This is why it is dangerous to pick up stones with your bare hands in areas where snakes are to be found. You never know what is underneath.
