The Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake is able to execute a full strike in less than 15mph. On rare occasion the snake’s strike momentum is powerful enough to catapult its entire body a whole foot forward.

The Eastern diamondback rattlesnakes is Florida’s largest venomous snake. Its bite can be fatal to humans but urbanization has decimated the population so much that this snake is rarely encountered by humans today. This rattlesnake feed mostly on small mammals, birds and other reptiles including alligator hatchlings. They kill their prey with a venomous bite. All rattlesnakes possess a set of fangs with which they inject large quantities of hemotoxic venom. The venom travels through the bloodstream, destroying victim’s tissue and causing swelling, internal bleeding, and intense pain. This pit vipers are primarily active at night, but they bask in the sun during the day. The threat of envenomation, advertised with the shaking of the rattle, deters many predators. However, rattlesnakes fall prey to other predators such as hawks, weasels, king snakes, indigo snakes and many other species, including larger alligators.

The Chilean rose tarantula (Grammostola rosea), also known as the rose hair tarantula, or the Chilean fire tarantula,is probably the most common species of tarantula available in American and European pet stores today, due to the large number of wild-caught specimens exported cheaply from their native Chile into the pet trade.

Grammostola rosea has been bred in captivity for years either for research purposes or for trade, and the females profit from a 'cooling period' of a few months preceding the introduction of a male for mating. Once a male has reached sexual maturity, he will create a sperm web before he is introduced to the female's terrarium. He eventually approaches the female's burrow with caution, tapping and vibrating his legs to attract her out of her shelter. At the opportune moment, the male lunges himself forward and using his hooks, holds the female's chelicerae, pushing his mate into a vertical position, giving him access to the female's epigyne (external genitalia). The male inserts one (or even both left and right) pedipalp into the female's epigyne and injects the fertilizing fluid. In the weeks following fertilization, the female produces a large egg sac (usually containing around 500 spiderlings). The Chilean rose tarantula was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in Florida in 2010. Find the stock footage @ www.Ojatrovisuals.com.

The canebrake rattlesnake, timber rattlesnake or banded rattlesnake (Crotalus horridus), is a species of venomous pit viper endemic to the eastern United States. During the winter, timber rattlesnakes brumate in dens, in limestone crevices, often together with copperheads and black rat snakes. Their prey are mainly small mammals, but may include small birds, frogs, other small animals, including other snakes. Although capable of consuming other rattlesnakes, the most common snake they prey upon are garter snakes. Female canebrake rattlers often bask in the sun before giving birth, in open rocky areas known as "basking knolls".
This is one of North America's most dangerous snakes, due to its long fangs, impressive size, and high venom yield. It is to some degree offset by its relatively mild disposition and long brumation period. Before striking, they often perform a good deal of preliminary rattling.

Brown recluse spiders build asymmetrical webs that frequently include a shelter consisting of disorderly thread. They frequently build their webs in woodpiles and sheds, closets, garages, plenum spaces, cellars, and other places that are dry and generally undisturbed. When dwelling in human residences they seem to favor cardboard, possibly because it mimics the rotting tree bark which they inhabit naturally. Human-recluse contact often occurs when such isolated spaces are disturbed and the spider feels threatened.

The bite frequently is not felt initially and may not be immediately painful, but it can be serious. The brown recluse bears a potentially deadly hemotoxic venom. Most bites are minor with no necrosis. However, a small number of brown recluse bites do produce severe dermonecrotic lesions (i.e. necrosis); an even smaller number produce severe cutaneous (skin) or viscerocutaneous (systemic) symptoms. In one study of clinically diagnosed brown recluse bites, skin necrosis occurred 37% of the time, while systemic illness occurred 14% of the time. In these cases, the bites produced a range of symptoms common to many members of the genus Loxosceles known as loxoscelism, which may be cutaneous and viscerocutaneous. In very rare cases, bites can even cause hemolysis—the bursting of red blood cells. Brown recluse spiders was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in Florida in 2010.

Black widows are small spiders have an unusually potent venom containing the neurotoxin latrotoxin, which causes the condition latrodectism, both named after the genus. Female widow spiders have unusually large venom glands and their bite can be particularly harmful to large vertebrates, including humans. However, despite the genus' notoriety, Latrodectus bites are rarely fatal or even produce serious complications. Only the bites of the females are dangerous to humans.

The prevalence of sexual cannibalism, a behavior in which the female eats the male after mating, has inspired the common name "widow spiders". This behaviour may promote the survival odds of the offspring; however, females of some species only rarely show this behavior, and much of the documented evidence for sexual cannibalism has been observed in laboratory cages where the males could not escape. Male black widow spiders tend to select their mates by determining if the female has eaten already to avoid being eaten themselves. They are able to tell if the female has fed by sensing chemicals in the web. Black widow incubating was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in Florida in 2010.

Newborn rattlesnakes carry enough venom to kill a human. But its rattle at the end of the tail is not fully developed yet.

Rattlesnakes belong to the group of venomous snakes called pit vipers (Croatian). There are 32 known species of rattlesnakes with 65-70 subspecies, all of them are native to the Americas and ranging from southern British Columbus in Canada to Central America Argentina. Rattlesnakes are predators who live in a wide array of habitats, hunting meanly small animals such as birds and small mammals such as rodents . They kill their prey with a venomous bite. All rattlesnakes possess a set of fangs with which they inject large quantities of hemotoxic venom. The venom travels through the bloodstream, destroying victim’s tissue and causing swelling, internal bleeding, and intense pain. Some species, such as the Mojave Rattlesnake, additionally possess a neurotoxic component in their venom that causes paralysis and other symptoms on the nervous system.
The threat of envenomation, advertised with the shaking of the rattle, deters many predators. However, rattlesnakes fall prey to hawks, weasels, king snakes and a variety of other species. Rattlesnakes are heavily preyed upon as neonates, while they are still weak and mentally immature. Very large numbers of rattlesnakes are killed by humans. Rattlesnake populations in many areas are severely threatened by habitat destruction, poaching, and extermination campaigns. Rattlesnake bites are the leading cause of snakebite injuries in North America, and cause approximately 82% of fatalities. However, rattlesnakes rarely bite unless provoked or threatened; and if treated promptly, the bites are rarely fatal. Newborn Rattlesnake Close up was filmed by Heiko Kiera in 2014.

Pythons are large constrictors and became very popular reptiles in the US pet trade during the late eighties but the mass importation has led to serious ecological problem in South Florida. The small python hatchlings out grow fast their initial setup cage and reaching eight foot in length within three years. Many pet owners no longer wish to care for their snake(s) and some people even decided to release their pythons back into the wild. During Hurricane Andrew, a mass escape of reptiles, including thousands of burmese pythons, from their exotic importers took place in 1992.

Many pythons escaped into the swamps of the Everglades with its perfect subtropical climate and vast food sources. These snakes began to thrive, resulting in a permanent breeding population of Burmese Pythons in South Florida. But also the African Rock Python has established a breeding population in Florida and many other species of pythons, such as the Reticulated Python can be found occasionally. Pythons spend the majority of their time hidden in the underbrush. They are nocturnal, ambush predators, feeding meanly on mammals, birds and other reptiles, including alligators and crocodiles. It has been observed that these constrictors turn into opportunistic feeders as well and do not hesitate to devour road kill or other dead animals they come across.

The eastern indigo snake is carnivorous, like all snakes, and will eat any other small animal it can overpower. This powerful predator has been known to kill its prey by wildly beating it against nearby objects. Its diet has been known to include other snakes, including venomous ones such as water moccasins and rattlesnakes, as it is immune to the venom of the North American rattlesnakes. Eastern indigo snakes also feed on turtles, lizards, frogs, toads, a variety of small birds, mammals as well as eggs.
The indigo snake has an even blue-black coloration, with some specimens having a reddish-orange to tan color on the throat, cheeks, and chin. This snake received its name from the glossy iridescent blackish-purple sheen it displays in bright light. This smooth-scaled snake is considered to be the longest native snake species in the United States. Mature male indigo snakes are slightly larger than females, measuring less than 8.0 ft, whereas a mature female typically measures around 6.0 ft in length. As defensive behavior the eastern indigo snake vertically flattens its neck, hisses, and vibrates its tail. Nevertheless, Indigo snakes are usually not aggressive towards human and If picked up, they seldom bite. Indigo Snakes was filmed by Heiko Kiera aka Ojatro in South Florida 2015.

My name is Heiko Kiera and I'm a wildlife videographer with a special interest in portraying the behavior of reptiles, such as alligators and crocodiles. Snakes, in particular venomous snakes, are the most misunderstood and subsequently disliked creatures on our planet. I hope my video work will help many people to overcome their fear and hopefully change their preconception on these fascinating animals.
