That's exactly what I was thinking, but it's easy to see that the constrictor was in NO position to wrap its body around the offending appendage.

Yes, but I bet it attacked a MUCH SMALLER snake ! You've heard of "snake envy", I'm sure.

Rarely bite?
So how do they eat their prey?
Absorb them through their skin?

The snake relayed a much different version of how it ended up with an Oscar Mayer wiener in its jaws.

EXACTLY HA HA HA. I'm not alone with my dirty mind and lack of trust. It sounds like some sex game that went wrong. Python in the toilet? Suuure

I'm always a bit appalled how they named a programming language after such an animal after hearing such news, but it turns out, it was named after Monty Python's Flying Circus, and NOT the animal.

I still think the candiru (a fish) is worse...it's tiny, swims up your pisshole, gets thoroughly inside your most tender bits, and then blooms out into an enormous puffball of spikes. The only way to get rid of it is going to the ER for surgery. Fun stuff eh?

For those wondering, this fish is found in the Amazon.
