Watch a rattlesnake plan attack by clearing path for its strike

The snakes checked out the area for signs of prey and then, once they had identified a burrow, forcibly jerked their heads and necks to move surrounding grass (see video, below). The hunters proceeded to wait for their prey in an ambush spot for up to 3 hours.
Perhaps the snakes are modifying their habitat to try and increase their hunting success
