Herpetologists worldwide were shocked Monday night by a layman’s recent discovery of a new species of snake.
The new species has been dubbed the Air Snake because of its unusual method of locomotion. Explained one scientist: “The Air Snake moves like a regular snake, but it travels through the air about two feet off the ground.”
The scientific community is baffled by the snake’s success in staying undiscovered for so long, especially considering its habitat. “Because the snake feeds on plastic bubble wrap, it tends to live in heavily populated, industrialized areas,” said one expert.
