Baby Lizard Chased By Snakes Is Every Nightmare You've Ever Had

Run, baby lizard... RUN!!!!

More gripping than a Hollywood drama, the life-or-death stakes in this new BBC clip are all too real. 

Watch as a baby lizard gives a snake the slip, only to find itself being chased by what looks like dozens of other serpents on Fernandina Island in the Galapagos.

The clip, which shows a hatchling iguana being pursued by racer snakes, is from the BBC’s “Planet Earth 2” series.  

Check it out above.
