Welcome to the snake-iest place on Earth

Every year, over 70,000 garter snakes gather at the Narcisse Snake Dens in Manitoba, Canada with one goal - to get it on. It is the largest gathering of snakes in the world.

The Snake Dens - which are open to the public - are full of limestone caves where the snakes gather to form 'mating balls' in which up to a hundred snakes compete for a single female.

Yikes.

Here's a video. You're welcome?

Garter snakes are harmless to humans - they don't even have any teeth - but that doesn't stop them from being seriously unnerving.

The absolute WORST thing about this video though is the noise of thousands of snakes slithering along the ground.

Shudder.
