5 SNAKES THAT MISSED WITH THE PORCUPINE
The porcupine is a small creature, but it can wreak havoc on large animals or even people. Equipped with extremely tough fur, these rodents are virtually untouchable and not the kind of prey a predator would want to chew on. Some even tried, but unfortunately they didn’t have a pleasant experience. And in this video you will see 5 times when snakes went wrong trying to eat or harass a porcupine. Here we go!
NUMBER 1. THE BITE
Many snakes are known to have highly lethal venoms capable of killing with just one bite. However, some animals are immune to snake venoms, and the hedgehog is one of them. Even if he wasn’t immune, it would be extremely difficult for a venomous snake to sink its fangs into the animal’s skin, as its body is completely covered in spikes. In this video a snake thought it could bite a hedgehog without getting hurt. She watches that big prickly ball for a while until at one point she bites the hedgehog. The bite clearly must have had no effect, at least for the hedgehog! The snake is watching, not understanding what actually happened! Soon after, she leaves.
NUMBER 2. THE FIGHT
This hedgehog was doing what many animals love to do, which is eating. In his search for food he comes across a snake. The snake makes it very clear that it will not be anyone’s meal, attacking the hedgehog with several boats. But it wasn’t enough to stop him from devouring her.
NUMBER 3. PITON SNAKE SWALLOWS PIG HONEY
Swallowing a porcupine whole was the worst decision this snake could have made in its life. Although your life ended right there! Python snakes are those of enormous sizes that do not have venoms and kill their prey by coiling and squeezing until they asphyxiate. That’s what this African python did, but with an uninteresting prey. A cyclist who was hiking through one of the reserves in South Africa came across a very swollen snake, which appeared to have swallowed something very large. The first impression it gives is that she had swallowed a wild boar or a baby antelope. Six days later the guards at the reserve found her dead and decided to open her up to see what she had actually eaten. And after opening the animal, guess what… a porcupine weighing almost 14 kilos. It was then that they discovered why the snake had died, and you must already know right.
NUMBER 4. BOA FLAG GOES BAD
This video recorded right here in Brazil shows a boa constrictor snake with its body covered in thorns after attacking a hedgehog. Because it is a constrictor snake, that is, it kills its prey by coiling and squeezing until it suffocates, its method of killing ended up not working against a hedgehog, and as a result its body was almost completely thorny.
NUMBER 5. EATING THE SNAKE
Perhaps you thought that the hedgehog only fed on fruits, leaves and shoots, which it normally finds high up in the trees, but also its diet consists of earthworms, spiders, slugs, centipedes, ants, beetles, bees and many other insects. And the snake too!
