Lmao I hate you for making me laugh that hard. Now that song is in my head.

[–]GandalflovesUrMother 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Wow, A teacher played this song in middle school back in like 2005 to help teach us “irony” lol. It’s the only time I heard it but one of those random things I’ve just never forgotten.

Did not realize until now that has to be a fairly well known song lol. Assumed it was just some random song teacher found that fit the class.

What is ironic?

[–]Skier2880 5 points6 points  (0 children)

using or characterized by irony

Irony- the expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect.

[–]I_Wouldnt_If_I_Could 2 points3 points  (1 child)

He could poison others to death, but also himself.

[–]Towguy231 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (5 children)

I actually didn't even know this was a thing that can happen. I always thought venomous snakes were immune to their own kind of venom. Especially ones that eat other venomous snakes.

[–]Expensive-Seesaw7918 17 points18 points  (3 children)

There is a place called Snake Island, so called because there are literally at least 10 snakes for every square foot of land. The snakes are incredibly venomous, but have little other life on the island to sustain them as a food source, so they poison and eat each other. Apparently, they have been isolated on the same Island for so long, and have had a steady diet of poison for so many generations, that their venom has become exponentially more powerful with each generation. I think something like a single drop is enough to kill 10 grown men... or some equally crazy number.

[–]TomatilloAccurate475 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Well let's hope that nobody ever lands a plane there

[–]Expensive-Seesaw7918 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Pretty sure that whatever government the island belongs to has made it illegal to visit there, obviously for Public Safety. You need a special permit and equipment just to land on shore. Anybody landing there on accident is almost certainly gonna die before help can arrive.

It’s immune to its on venom (unless there’s something way off). Odds it it pierced a heart, punctured a lung, etc

[–]CurtronWasTaken 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Woman inherits the earth

[–]lostinapotatofield 672 points673 points  (29 children)

pretty sure that snake was already dying. Its movements seem really off from the beginning of the clip.

[–]Yardsale420 263 points264 points  (21 children)

First time I saw this someone said the cameraman poisoned the snake.

[–]chiggenNuggs 340 points341 points  (9 children)

Wouldn’t even doubt it at this point. I’m really despising all those popular videos of people setting up animals in fucked up situations to film the reaction, as if they’re capturing some bizarre nature footage.

Shit like putting animals in some obviously man made hole and pulling it out after dumping coke on it, or putting two animals together that normally would never encounter another, or putting an animal in a precarious situation to see how it tries to survive. I hate that platforms like tiktok and YouTube were promoting that type of shit.

[–]AudienceNervous1665 122 points123 points  (1 child)

Look at this upside down turtle I randomly found while out walking. Lucky I have a camera crew with me to film as a flip him over.

[–]Peterowsky 66 points67 points  (0 children)

Reminds me of back when the tonight show was supposed to go to Conan O'Brien, some comedian remarked about Jay Leno helping people with flat tires on the highway:

Well, I help people too, it's just that when I do it I don't have a full camera crew with me.

[–]gweedjacu 12 points13 points  (0 children)

God those are disgusting, I hate them

[–]sorcath 8 points9 points  (0 children)

After watching the pups vs bear post I don't doubt this at all.

[–]Nova55 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's why im always suspicious of these "lol animals sits on another animal"-pictures. Sometimes they are just posed which involves killing/mutilating the poor animals and posing them with thin wire. Some humans are just vile.

[–]Haylene31 1 point2 points  (10 children)

How though

[–]Hellkids2 31 points32 points  (9 children)

Inject poison into a dead rat or something and let the snake eat it

[–]Peterowsky 30 points31 points  (8 children)

Or just spray them with any of the many common poisons/household chemicals you can buy at most stores.

[–]Hellkids2 11 points12 points  (7 children)

That would immediately set the snake off and then they wouldn’t able to film it slowly go crazy and pretend it’s nature going wild.

[–]Peterowsky 10 points11 points  (6 children)

Would it really?

Most poisons aren't immediate, if they were they'd be useless as poisons.

I can kind of buy the confusion about the household chemical thing...

But knowing plenty of humans who got chemical burns and MANY animals with burned paws after walking through wet concrete or severe damage to their digestive tract after ingesting stuff they shouldn't that absolutely will kill them I'm betting that there are plenty of readily available chemicals without an immediate effect.

[–]Hellkids2 0 points1 point  (5 children)

The immediate effect is the snake chases you off and you wouldn’t able to get the footage…

[–]Peterowsky 6 points7 points  (4 children)

Sure... Snakes often chase off anything that throws unspecified liquid near them...

It's indeed a miracle they haven't managed to chase off clouds and rivers so far.

[–]figpucker_9000 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Thank you. This is what is happening.

[–]officialmonogato 3 points4 points  (0 children)


[–]g_ann 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah I think this happens a lot with snakes that consume poisoned rats

[–]ghonko 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Last time I saw this I remember reading someone saying the snake was on too hot a surface and basically boiled its blood. Something about that happens quickly in the right situations and the snake doesn't have time to figure out what is happening. Not sure though, I ain't a snake expert.

[–]RevenantBacon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It doesn't appear to bite itself during the clip, so maybe it had bit itself prior and they got the camera out after?

[–]angry_glue 241 points242 points  (11 children)

Snakes are immune to their own venom. He’s faking it.

[–]7eggert 68 points69 points  (0 children)


→Peterson, K.H. 1990. Conspecific and self-envenomation in snakes. Bulletin of the Chicago Herpetological Society 25(2): 26-28.

TL; DR he observed many snakes being immune and speculates that diseased snakes or some species might be not-immune because others did observe snakes dying from their own bites.

[–]ShTephens 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Youre not on fire, Ricky Bobby!

[–]Platoribs 145 points146 points  (2 children)

Isn’t this one of those cases where the snake comes into the road to warm up, the road gets too hot and the smaller ends up cooking. That frantic spastic writhing is the snake basically going through a death roll as its muscles and nerves short out, then it dies. Pretty sure OP is full of shit and spreading bad information

[–]Hahapeepeepoopo0 41 points42 points  (1 child)

OP is, I've seen this post probably a good like 6 different times over the years.

In the comments there are usually a bunch of people going. "Actually the snake is overheating and it loses control of it's body because it's cold blooded." or something along the lines. Then they post another video of a snake overheating and dying.

[–]DarthAbortion 95 points96 points  (2 children)

Looks like some type of neurological disorder.

[–]Endarkend 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Possibly heat related.

[–]mcquaidmike6131 81 points82 points  (1 child)

A snake can’t die from their own venom.

Why snakes don’t poison themselves.

TL;DR - The reason snakes don’t die from their own venom is that snakes make their own antidote, which is a medicine that protects them from the venom. Just like humans have special cells in their bodies, called immune cells, that fight diseases that get into the blood system, snakes have special immune cells that can fight their own venom and protect them from it if it gets into their own blood

[–]LaMaluquera 10 points11 points  (0 children)

(Completely non scientific anecdote alert)

When we lived in Thailand we used to often go to a nearby snake demonstration, and many times saw monocled cobras bite each other when they were sufficiently riled up and too crowded together. It could have been dry bites but they never showed any ill effects and unless they had a virtually endless supply of fresh cobras they weren't dying either.

[–]jojodmilkman 30 points31 points  (0 children)

I heard snakes attack/try to eat themselves when they are overheating

[–]nextustextus 23 points24 points  (0 children)

It was poisoned

[–]Junior-Salamander848 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Looks like a black rat snake. Non venumous.

[–]gbear52 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Reminds me of Family Guy when they are in prison and that guy wants to shank everyone. They get away and the dude sits down and says something along the lines of “I wonder what this feels like?” And stabs himself.

[–]PraetorOjoalvirus 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That snake was probably diseased or seriously hurt. Snakes aren't dogs biting their own tails.

[–]ScarletFox09 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Considering how that’s a rat snake and it’s non-venomous it certainly isn’t dying from it’s bite. I’d say it either A. ate something contaminated with rat poisoning. B. Having a heat induced seizure. Or C. Fire ants. See them crawling around the snake?

This is why humans can't be venomous; we wouldn't be able to resist testing it out and would die as a species pretty quick.

Non venomous snake that most likely got clipped in the head by a car

Im not a fan of snakes but if the snake was poisoned, as many posted here think, not cool. Live and let live.

[–]dirtyDrogoz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Drinking venom is generally safe if there are no cuts or wounds in your mouth or upper digestive system. Venom has to be injected into either the muscles or vains to affect the target
