Watch: 360° Behind the Scenes Footage from that Insane 'Planet Earth 2' Snake vs. Iguana Chase

360 degrees of Planet Earth 2. What else could you ask for?

Unless you were living under a rock this week—like, say, a snake or an iguana—you probably saw the most insane chase sequence of 2016, brought to you by Planet Earth 2. A baby iguana in the Galapagos runs for its life with a horde of terrifying snakes hot on its trail, and with some deft camerawork and tension-building editing, the sequence outpaces even George Miller's craft

BBC has just released two behind-the-scenes videos—with one shot in 360°, no less. Click and drag on the image to look around as the camera crew rehearses with a DJI Ronin to film the iguanas running, and a long lens to get tight shots of the action.

BBC has released Planet Earth 2 in the UK; sadly, it won’t come to BBC America until January 28, 2017. In the meantime, watch more behind-the-scenes footage here.

I have a fear of snakes, but from a film making point of view, that was very cool to watch!
