    Have you ever seen a snake shedding its skin? Or maybe you did not even know that snakes do it (and quite regularly)?

    A video recently shared online shows a mesmerising process of a snake shedding its skin. 

    If you have not ever seen this, you have a unique chance to see this in every detail thanks to a close-up.

    Zoologists say that snakes shed skin periodically - to allow for further growth and to remove parasites that may have attached to their old skin.
