The snake who really bit off more than it could chew: Centipede EATS its way out viper's stomach


 Unlucky: A snake was found dead with a centipede's head sticking out of its abdomen in Macedonia last year by a group of researchers who reported their findings in a journal published in March
Freedom was so close, yet so far for this centipede. After being swallowed whole by a snake, it made one last desperate attempt to escape by eating its way out of her stomach on Golem Grad, Macedonia. Researchers believe that the 20cm young snake may have underestimated the size of the prey and paid a fatal price.

  1. I will never again complain when my chili... comes out hot. Remind me, though, should I ever eat a centipede in your presence, to make sure it's dead. Hot chili is... good enough for my record books. :p
