Brainstorm a Use for this Creepy Robotic Snake

Let's face it: snakes give many of us the willies, and one of the more time-honored (if mean, sneaky and hilarious) outdoors traditions is slipping a snake (either dead or harmless) into someone's sleeping bag/tent/shoes/truck cab/boat/et cetera...

Now researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have constructed a robotic snake that can climb trees, and it's far creepier than any real snake you'd encounter in the wild

If you had one of these things, what would you use if for? Mobile trail cams?
