Yikes – one of the most shocking and thrilling chase scenes you’ll ever see… with a ‘twist’ in the tail! A hatchling marine iguana makes a run for its life… but will it outwit, outrun and outplay the horde of runner snakes that appear to be working in a pack?

This video footage is from the BBC’s Planet Earth II, presented by Sir David Attenborough. If you’re scared of snakes, please skip to the Benny Hill version which is far less traumatising!
