I bet from time to time you wonder what‘s inside one or another object. What if you could cut open a wasp nest without getting hurt, or have you ever wanted to know what‘s inside a black box?
Or what is it inside a Rattlesnake tail? As we all know, Rattlesnake rattle works like a warning device for predatory animals that might be a threat to the rattlesnake. It produces a signal to drive them away. It is said to be composed of a series of hollow, interlocked segments made of keratin. By the way, the muscles that cause the rattle to shake are some of the fastest known, firing 50 times per second on average, sustained for up to three hours, can you imagine that? Are you able to shake anything 50 times a second for 3 hours?))
Anyways, now thanks to Daniel Markham and his son we can see ourselves how those segments look like from the inside. As those guys are all about smash stuff to see what it's made of. This time it is Rattlesnake rattle.
