Get in touch with your inner marmot

First, a leftover from a few days ago: Another article I came across about "flying" snakes.

But who knew there was a scientific basis behind it? Who knew that the right music might just tap into the primal part of our brain that still remembers what it was like being a tasty caveman in a world of real monsters looking for a snack?
