How Do Snakes Catch Their Prey Underwater?

<p>When catching prey underwater snakes use two main techniques: the frontal strike and the lateral strike. By studying real snakes in the lab at ESPCI/MNHN, Marion Segall was able to recreate the setup using a 3D-printed snake head and laser visualisation techniques, which allowed for the forces involved in each strike to be measured. </p> <p>Research by Marion Segall at ESPCI/MNHN. <br />  </p>
