However, many forum users identified the snake in the viral video and called it a puff adder. They explained that its movement is known as rectilinear locomotion. According to Encyclopedia Britannica, this motion happens when the snake’s body moves in a straight line and uses a flow of muscle contractions along the sides which makes it look like a caterpillar moving forward. According to reports, this kind of locomotion movement is quite common in large and heavy-bodied snakes including boas and some of the vipers.
