Can a snake eat a human?
#5. Pythons sometimes measure their prey before consumption.
In a few tales that have spread around the internet, snake owners have reported strange behavior from their pets. Often in these stories, the snake would refuse meals repeatedly and the owner would wake to find the snake in the bed with them, with its length stretched out beside them on various occasions. After taking the snake to the vet to get an opinion on the matter, the vet says that the snake was measuring the owner and planning to eat them.
Though tales like these have spread around and seem to make sense, the truth is that a python does not measure its prey. Since snakes are ambush predators, they do not have time to do this; if they did, they would likely starve. Pythons are known to grab, squeeze and eat. Many of their meals are not well thought-out, and if are actually too large, will often be regurgitated. A python does not measure its meal, or wait on it if it is ready to eat.
#4. A constrictor snake has consumed a full-grown adult human
While countless stories, and even photographs, have swam across the web making this claim, there has yet to be an entirely affirmative account of it.
In few cases, babies or small children have been swallowed by snakes, but never has a full-grown adult been consumed. An adult human is very difficult for a snake to swallow because of its less-than-ideal size and shape. The shoulders on the human body are very hard for a snake to swallow.
While there have been many stories stating this, there has yet to be a single account that has credibility.
#3. It is dangerous to eat a venomous snake
When figuring out whether to eat a reptile, it is important to note whether it is venomous or poisonous. If a creature is venomous, it injects its toxins into its victims, and if a creature is poisonous that means that the toxins are excreted through its skin or other outlets.
To answer the question, there are actually no poisonous snakes on the planet. All snakes are venomous, meaning that in order to harm a person, a snake must puncture a person’s skin with its fangs to inject them with its toxins. If this process, which immediately combines the venom in a person’s bloodstream, does not occur, then the toxins within the snake are of no harm.
