Flying Snakes Can Travel Remarkable Distances, Now Scientists Know How : NPR

When the paradise tree snake flies from one tall branch to another, its body ripples with waves like green cursive on a blank pad of blue sky. That movement, aerial undulation, happens in each glide made ...

New 3-D model shows how the paradise tree snake uses aerial undulation to fly

While most snakes undulate their bodies to propel themselves on land or water, the paradise tree snake, a species of flying snake, wiggles its body to stabilise itself as it glides through the airWhile most snakes undulate their bodies to propel themselves on land or water, the paradise tree snake, a species of flying snake, wiggles its body to stabilise itself as it glides through the air

https://youtu.be/KUbc8YYwOxk Some snakes have evolved the ability to glide through the air. For example, paradise tree snakes in southeastern Asia can launch off from a branch and fly as far as 10 meters. Scientists have known that the snakes flatten their bodies to gain lift but new research reveals that they also undulate their bodies…Some snakes have evolved the ability to glide through the air.
