The first episode of Planet Earth II, the sequel to BBC’s acclaimed documentary miniseries, aired Sunday. And it was amazing.

Possibly the most stirring moment in the episode involved a lone lizard and a minefield of snakes.

 

It’s shot (and edited) cleverly to resemble a heart-pounding action thriller. But the moments of tension, bursts of speed, death-defying leaps, and near-captures are all real.

There’s dramatic tension.

And terror.

And biting!

Watch below, and see how it ends.
