I was lucky enough to have seen this show in high def via Dish Network. I loved it and copied it onto a DVD. My DVD recorder only records in low definition however... This is a show that, to be truly appreciated, must be seen in high definition. Seeing the incredible detail of their skin and eyes is just incredible. So, as soon as I realized it was available in the Blu-Ray format I didn't hesitate to order it.

Snakes are among the most feared and misunderstood animals we share this planet with. As this documentary shows, they really can be quite beautiful creatures! The footage is awe-inspiring and educational.

I highly recommend it!!!

There's no denying that the hi-def footage here is gorgeous, but The Beauty of Snakes has some of the worst narration I have ever heard on a documentary. The robotic woman's voice is completely emotionless and entirely in monotone. She conveys no interest, no enthusiasm, no emotion at all. It sounds like she is utterly bored with what she is saying. As a result, the viewer also feels weighed down by boredom. It is hard to stay interested in this doco because of this.

If you have a grandson obsessed with reptiles as I do, this video will satisfy even the strongest cravings for information about and viewing of all types of snakes. Really, after the tenth viewing, we are still learning things that we missed while mesmerized by the photography. I highly recommend this for the NOT faint of heart as it is graphic, just right for young boys who like prey being chased and consumed.

The Beauty of Snakes seems to generate either love or hate. If you're expecting to learn a lot about snakes, this is not the video for you. In fact, you're better off reading a book for that. The New Encyclopedia of Snakes would be a good starting point. Chris Mattison, the author, is a master of photographing snakes, so it's almost as pretty as the video, and far more informative. And he is meticulous in verifying the information he passes along, rather than simply repeating the old nonsense as so many books do.

That said, this is one of the most beautiful videos you are likely to see about snakes. As others have said, the videography is stunning. If you're just looking to appreciate snakes for their visual appeal, you'll love The Beauty of Snakes. Tastes vary, but I find the narration non-intrusive and appropriate, where some apparently find it dull. On the positive side, there is no incorrect information being passed along, that I can recall. That makes this video almost unique, since most nature shows are even worse than most books, when it comes to being riddled with nonsense and false information, especially when it comes to snakes.

I have to say, though.. as much as I like this video, you'd have to be out of your mind to pay the prices these non-Amazon vendors are asking for new copies of this disc. At the moment, there is one new copy listed for $1,871.38, while you can pick up a used copy from $3.69. I guess some people REEEEEALLY love this video!

If your into snakes, want to learn more about snake or look for an introduction to Blu ray this is the Blu ray for you. The carity is wonderful and the colors are rich. I have handle snakes for over 20 years and the information is on point. They focus on snakes in the wild. Snakes make good pets but this doent highlight snakes in captivity.
