Crazy Snake Eats Itself – Insane Video

Crazy Snake Eats Itself - Insane Video

Watch this insane video of a crazy snake that starts swallowing his own tail and tries to eat himself. I guess the saying “you are what you eat” takes on a whole new meaning when your own tail is what’s on the menu.

In 2009, Bob Reynolds of Sussex was horrified to discover his pet king snake, Reggie, “chomping down on his back end.” According to the vet who attended to the crazy snake, “I’ve never seen a case like it, although I have heard about it happening.” Fortunately, after 30 minutes of gently freeing Reggie’s teeth, the serpent’s tail was saved before digestion had set in.

What could’ve driven an animal to devour itself in the first place? In Reggie’s case, this culinary mishap wasn’t too far off from his species’ usual diet. King snakes (Lampropeltis getula) frequently consume smaller snakes including poisonous rattlers, so it’s likely that the critter mistook his wriggling hindquarters for a potential prey item.

This crazy snake may have survived his ordeal, but at least one other specimen didn’t live to tell the “tail.” In The New Encyclopedia of Snakes, herpetologist Joseph C. Mitchell writes:

The most bizarre accounts of snake feeding behavior have to be those of American rat snakes, Pantherophis obsoletus, that have been observed eating themselves! One individual, a captive, did this on two occasions and died at the second attempt. The other individual was wild and was in a tight circle, having swallowed about two thirds of its body, when it was found.

  6. Hello Dear, What you ?came up with here surely have me excited up to the last sentence, and I gotta tell you I almost never read through the entire post of blogs as I often got bored and tired of the junk that is presented in the junkyard of the world wide web on a daily basis and then I just end up checking out the headlines and maybe the first lines or something like that. But your tag-line and the first paragraphs were so cool and it immediately grabbed my attention. So, I just wanna say: nice and rare job! Thanks, really.

  7. I had been honored to receive a call from my friend as soon as he found out the important tips shared on your own site. Studying your blog publication is a real excellent experience. Thanks again for taking into account readers at all like me, and I want for you the best of success as being a professional topic.

  8. You really understand bodybuilding. Do you think that prohormones are the best way to achieve your goals in the gym or are supplements like amino acids a waste of time and money?

  9. There are a few fascinating time limits here however I don’t know if they all center to heart. There exists some validity however I am going to take hold opinion until I consider it further. Good article , thanks so we want extra! Included in FeedBurner as properly

  10. Right here is the perfect web site for everyone who hopes
    to understand this topic. You realize so much its almost tough to argue with you (not
    that I really will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject that has been written about
    for many years. Excellent stuff, just great!

  11. I simply want to mention I am newbie to weblog and seriously enjoyed you’re website. Very likely I’m going to bookmark your site . You actually come with very good well written articles. Thanks a lot for sharing your web site.

  12. I used to be recommended this blog through my cousin. I am no longer positive whether or not this submit is written via him as
    nobody else realize such specific about my difficulty.

    You are wonderful! Thank you!

  13. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be
    a lot more useful than ever before.
