Dasypeltis inornata Eating from Hand

Postby Mehelya » Mon Feb 01, 2016 12:10 pm

Well, a good friend asked to see a video of my larger Southern Brown Egg eater eating a chicken egg, and thought I'd put it up here for others as well. Sadly, my camera died half way, but it took the snake around 5-10 minutes from starting to swallow, right until it regurged the remaining shell. I often wonder what we would look like if we had to do this sort of thing in order to eat... Would make dinner dates a hang of a lot more interesting...

If I wasn't me, then I'd probably be someone else...
Forceps. Not fingers...
Yes, it probably will bite you if you carry on that way...

Awesome man.

That is one beast of an Eggie to make such short work of that egg!

Reminds me of a video a saw couple weeks back...go on Youtube and search "Watermelon Boy."
