Fight constriction with alcohol!

A snake like Python Reticulatus or Green Anaconda is big enough to attack, constrict and swallow a big animal like pig (see the video), antelope, cow … They are also known as man eaters. It happens many times that an owner of a big constrictor gets a big hug. Many survive this event because they know what they need to do in the very moment they get constricted:

  • Pour strong alcohol (vodka, whiskey etc.) directly in the snakes’ mouth.
  • Pour hot water over the animals’ skin.

The snake will release in a second and that’s when you’ll get your chance to breath again.

A snake is not a domestic animal! It’s a dangerous wild beastwith very basic instincts. If you happen to smell like a pray you might easily become one. So remember! Whenever you are handling a dangerous constrictor make sure to have three things near you: Hot water, alcohol and a strong friend.

Anakonda regurgitates a hippo

The largest-known snake in the world is the Anaconda, or Eunectes murinus, of South America. As we know snakes swallow their victims whole. It is a common misperception that snake’s jaw can be unhinged from the skull to allow something much larger than the snake’s girth to be swallowed. The jaws are actually connected by a ligament that stretches. Once the carcass is inside the snake it must be digested quickly before it rots in the serpent’s gut. If a snake cannot digest his prey before bacteria does, the snake will be forced to regurgitate it.

This clip shows a 6 m anaconda that swallowed a small hippopotamus and then regurgitated it. This is a perfect example showing what snakes can do with their jaws. Enjoy.

Boa constrictor can swallow just about any pray. Eating a human or even a hippo is not a problem. It’s a miracle what a snake can do with her jaws! Wow!

It’s a shame that this snake has a very small cage but her dinner is a reasonably big rat. Royal Pythons (Python regius) originate from western Africa. When they feel fear, they usually transform their body into a ball. This popular species can reach 120 centimeters (48 inches) in length.
