People are saying this is the ‘derpiest-looking’ animal alive

Mate, if there’s anything that gets us fired up, it’s people putting s**t on reptiles. As you know, we bloody love our reptiles here at Ozzy Man Reviews and we take great umbrage with anyone being mean to our cold-blooded friends. So now that we’ve heard people are saying the Arabian Sand Boa is the derpiest animal alive, we’re gonna have to crack some skulls…

Yeah, all right, all right, we’ll have a look at one of these bewdies before we get too worked up. Give us a squiz.

Ah, yeah, okay, that’s a pretty bloody derpy looking snake. We take it back.

Yeah, nah, we weren’t trying to be a big Terry or anything, we just thought you were all being a bit harsh.

Anyway, you can see the photos. If you have already had a bloody gander, you’re probably having a chuckle by now, and we don’t blame you. But, we will say a few things in the Arabian Sand Boa’s defense: It’s only a little bugger – growing to about 38cm – and it’s limited to the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula.

If you’re wondering why its eyes are so bloody derpy, there’s a simple reason for that. It’s a nocturnal predator that spends the day buried deep in the sand. Kinda like your old man’s golf balls. Hah, golf puns. We hope you’re old and boring.

Once night hits, this bad boy comes alive. It makes its way up to the surface and just bloody chills there with only its eyes above the sand. When a little gecko comes along, bloody BANG, it strikes. Being a boa, it hasn’t got any venom, so it gives the gecko a big hug and reassures it that everything’s going to be fine.

Yeah, nah, no it doesn’t. It kills it and eats it. Then it goes back to looking like the derpiest animal you ever saw.

Final thought: Once again, we’re big fans of wildlife here at Ozzy Man Reviews and we’ll never get tired of looking at the myriad ways evolution has moulded each and every creature to be bloody perfect for its environment. If that means some of them are ugly or funny-looking that just adds to the fun. Anyway, we’ll finish up and invite you to let us know your favourite funny-looking critter in the comments section.
