It's the thrilling nature footage that's captured the internet, and left viewers in sweaty, heaving hysterics.
A little iguana hatchling, mercilessly chased down by a ridiculous swarm of hungry racer snakes on the Galapagos Islands, makes a break from their slimy, coiled grasp to improbable safety, a few Stallone-like Cliffhanger leaps along the way.
It's part zombie flick, part action-thriller chase, all set to an anxious Schifrin-esque score from Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer and Sir David Attenborough's brusque summation: "A near miraculous escape."
The clip, from the BBC's premiere episode of Planet Earth II, has gone viral since airing in the UK on Sunday, lauded by one viewer as "possibly the greatest scene in documentary history".
"I'm a bit of a movie fanatic so I kind of pick things up from all over the place – Big Hitchcock fan, Christopher Nolan, Scorsese, Spielberg, etc. But cutting wildlife films are like cutting silent movies, it's all about action/reaction. Also timing, be it for comedy or thrills," Meech told the news site.
"In real life, those things are moving much, much faster. It's incredibly hard to film them while running and keep everything in focus. But sometimes the focus didn't matter as the moment was so intense."
Planet Earth II – the now 90-year-old Attenborough's much-anticipated return to his Emmy Award-winning 2006 series - pulled in a huge 9.2 million viewers for its UK premiere.
Shot over 2,089 days in over 40 different countries, the series was produced in Ultra High-Definition 4K, utilising drone cameras and remote recording techniques that weren't even available when the first series went to air ten years ago.
The six-part series is due to air in Australia next year.
