Snakes have various species. To name a few, there’s the Leptotyphlops carlae, the smallest snake in the world according to Reptiles Magazine, and of course the Giant Anaconda – the largest snake in the world. In the Philippines, we have the Philippine Cobra which is one of the most poisonous snakes in the world.
Some snakes are so big that they can devour other snakes.
In this video uploaded by Youtube channel Canal Rox, a group of men found a dead giant snake with an enormous belly in the middle of a forest. The group wondered what the snake could have eaten that led to its death. To satisfy their curiosity, one man cut the swollen part of the snake a only to reveal that it devoured another snake, a phyton. Phytons are known to be one of the largest snakes in the world. Huge snakes need big prey to appease their huge appetite.
Like anacondas, phytons are non-venomous. They kill their target meal through crushing their bodies. It is probable that the anaconda couldn’t handle its meal’s size, leading to its death.
We’ve often use snakes as a metaphor for people who betray us. So be careful if you are trying to take advantage of another person. You might end up like this starving anaconda – you’ll never know if your next target will lead to your demise.
