the snake cut into three pieces keeps sliding on the grill


why are snakes not as common as you might expect given that they are long strings of pure muscle and protein?. the reason is that they still slither long after being killed and chopped up like the spooky reptiles they are today. This action is called posthumous movement, and is caused by involuntary contractions of muscles that still have functioning cells and residual electrical activity in the nerves. While the snake is most certainly dead, motions like these go to show how much microscopic life is involved in making macroorganisms like us. if science can explain these movements to me i'm going to keep my distance and keep the snake out of my mouth.
