Hunting Viper on kangaroo jumpers

Scientists from the University of California riverside for the first time managed to capture the moment hunting vipers Crotalus scutulatus on kangaroo jumpers using a high speed camera in the Mojave desert.

The video was made using camera traps, recording speeds of 500 frames per second. As it turned out, to catch a rodent for a Viper is not an easy task. Video kangaroo jumpers successfully avoided snakes throw due to stored energy in the veins, which at the right time “shot”, allowing kangaroo kangaroo to make a quick jump.
