    I guess a tortoise in a hot place basking is just as good as a rock to a snake.

    And if the rock keeps walking to warmer spots then all the better

    I wonder if that tortoise was originally captive. Not a shell I would expect from a wild tortoise.
    Anyway, pretty cool. The snake is smart. Getting a ride and heat from above and below.

    I read the words, but searched all over the screen and could never see where the video was.

    My bet is on set up.
    But It's still brilliant!
