Cloacal Popping in Snakes

I'm reading the abstract of an in-depth study of the ability of two snake species to take part in what is known as cloacal-popping - that is, snake farting - to ward of predators. Did I mention I'm pretty happy with my job?

  1. I like this cowboy snake dude! Macho, religious, buff and digs Nature. Awesome. I've never even heard of the hook-nosed snake. Very cool. The hog-nosed snake that he mentions is pretty cool too. Toads are their main prey and they are immune to toad poison. Thanks for postin'.
