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!!!
Would have like to seen more of the natural environment rather then "Hollywood effects of over drama.
There was no reason to have people in this show at all, the woman being put in the scenes for over drama was really disappointing to me.
One of my favorite shots was a full grown King Cobra swimming across a beautiful blue and white pool.
I was mesmerized by the grace of the snake forgetting momentarily about the devastating affects of its venom.
Another great scene was a camera mounted on a snake and watching how the snake moves on the ground.
I highly recommend this DVD the footage is worth it.
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!

This is ridiculous, the narrator didn't mention anything worthwhile, the quality - although stunning...doesn't make up for the lack of information present here. Read morePublished on December 19, 2009 by S. Gerges
