Watch a Hatchling Marine Iguana Elude Racer Snakes on The Galápagos Islands

Nature can’t be scripted, but if this was a live-action or even animated film, I’d watch it. 

If you haven’t seen this footage from the BBC Earth – Planet Earth II, you’ve been under a rock and in this video, as you’ll come to see that’s not where you’d want to be.

Watch as a marine iguana on The Galápagos Islands encounters one racer snake after the next in its quest to stay alive. [Insert The BeeGees track here!]

It feels a lot like losing your way and ending up in a really bad neighbourhood, where you nervously utter the words, “I don’t want any trouble guys….”, after encountering some hoodlums.

Enjoy the unmistakable narration of English broadcaster and naturalist, David Attenborough. He is to nature documentaries what Morgan Freeman is to film.
