For people who hate snakes and spiders equally, you will be nothing short of horrified at this incredible combo! The Pseudocerastes urarachnoides, or the spider-tailed horned viper, is  a snake that is endemic to an area in the West of Iran. It’s tail resembles that of a spider’s, with which the animal lures in its prey.

This terrifying viper camouflages itself in the desert rocks in which it lives, and when a bird falls into its trap, it strikes quickly and mercilessly.
