– Footage of snake swallowing a plastic bottle has emerged
-In the video, the reptile can be see trying to squeeze the liquid container
– After failing to take a bite of the bottle, the snake decides to swallow it whole
– Curious locals can be seen milling around to witness the bizarre episode
A troubling video of a snake swallowing then expelling out a whole soda bottle has hit the internet and everyone is mystified by the reptile’s strange eating habit. The footage, which was reportedly filmed somewhere in Goa, India, shows the reptile trying to squeeze ‘life’ out of the plastic bottle as if it is one of its preys. But the bottle proves too difficult to handle. Angered by the liquid container’s stubbornness, the snake decided to swallow it whole, perhaps hoping that its digestive system will take care of the rest. Meanwhile, a crowd of curious locals milled around to witness what was to follow.
“On seeing the snake’s bulgy stomach, my first thought was that the cobra must have swallowed some really huge meal. The last thing I expected to hear was that it had actually swallowed a bottle” says Goutham Bhagat, wildlife rescuer. The viral footage shows the locals, who had gathered to witness, relieved after the reptile manages to eject the inedible object.
However, nobody seems to understand why a snake would eat something that it normally doesn’t feast on and which doesn’t taste like one of its many preys. Unable to digest it, the reptile ejected the bottle. This is reportedly the first ever such incident in the world.
