Millions of Swifties couldn't take their eyes off of them on Monday (Aug. 21) and then again on Tuesday morning (Aug. 22): a pair of mysterious, slithery teaser clips posted on Taylor Swift's social media feeds. Are they snakes? Are they lizards? Are they a tease about a new album, a new single? Some sort of silent commentary on the news? Coded symbols representing some slimy person she can no longer trust?
WHAT ARE THEY????
At press time we still had no idea. But Billboard reached out to a pair of reptile experts to find out what they think it all might mean. "Both posts appear to be computer-generated imagery rather than actual organisms," said David A. Steen Ph.D., Assistant Research Professor at the Auburn University Museum of Natural History. The wildlife ecologist and conservation biologist with the popular @AlongsideWild twitter feed said the videos appear to show images of snakes or snake-like creatures, but he's not certain what the artist intended.
