BIZARRE: Snake gets revenge after being eaten

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A photograph shows a brown snake eating a black snake, in which the black snake then eating the brown snake. Talk about revenge, bizarre and just down right crazy!


Geoff Mitchell from Australia took this photo in New South Wales after seeing the tangled snakes off the side of a road.

“I tried to research it on the internet and it seems quite common for brown snakes to eat black snakes, but I have seen none where one snake has punched a hole through another.” Mitchell suggested a predator such as a hawk may have inadvertently helped the black snake get out by attacking the brown one.

The image was sent to the Australia Zoo via facebook for comment, here is what the Australian zoo said: “This is certainly unusual... We can't imagine a black snake climbing into another snake but this entire situation is very strange. We would still suggest that the brown one was eating the black, but we will never know for sure.”
