An albino Western Hognose snake eats herself in this short but dramatic video. Normally snakes, the cold blooded creatures as they are, do this kind if thing if they feel hot – not uncommon under a heat lamp in a pet shop environment. They say turning off the heat and spraying the snake with some water could have stopped her eating herself. After their jaw locks on to the their preys – which, in this case, is her poor self – operation is the only thing that actually helps.
Poor snake! Keep these regal reptiles cold!
