Some people go out of their way to witness Snake Road in Illinois during the peak migration times. I'm not one of those people, but many are. A new video share shows what that roadway in Illinois is like during peak snake migration and it's not for the faint of heart.

If you're not familiar, Snake Road in Illinois is located in the Shawnee National Forest and it's closed several months of the year to allow snakes native to the area to make their way safely across it. It's only about 3 miles in length, but this unpaved road is not traversable by vehicle from March through mid-May and also from September through October.

Jim Herbert Outdoors went down to Snake Road in Illinois and captured this short but sweet (or would that be venomous?) video of Copperheads making their way across this Illinois dirt road.

A snake hobbyist group also captured video of all the reptiles that they seem to love for some reason.

To be fair to the snakes, they're just being snakes and this is what is instinctive to them. However, I find these videos terrifying and prefer to be where the snakes aren't. If you find this interesting, National Geographic has some tips on when and how to visit Snake Road in Illinois safely. As for me, I'll just stay here...huddled up in like a ball in the corner pretending this road in Illinois does not exist.
