ELECTRIC FENCE



Seems a sheep farmer was puzzled

about the disappearance of some sheep on his farm. After a few weeks the
farmer decided to put up an electric fence.
About a week later, this is what he found!


Now, I know we've all heard of people being eaten by snakes & I bet most of
us have said,
"If a snake tried to eat me, I'd blah, blah, blah & get away."

Well, this is a Python & they're extremely aggressive & have a few teeth
that they use to
hold their prey while they wrap around them & then constrict.
Could you get away if this one bit you & held on with its
"few teeth?"
(Note: The wires are 10 inches apart\)

Pythons and other constrictor snakes don't have teeth. :p

Oh yes they do! They have very sharp teeth that are curved towards the back of their mouth. They use their teeth to capture their prey and hold onto it while they constrict.

This story is not true, but the pic was actually taken in South Africa. This was verified by Snopes.....

Oh trust me they have teeth. I used to have a Burmease Python and it never used to bite me, but rather bit my little brother all the time. One thing to remember when getting bit by a constrictor is to NEVER pull away because if it's a large snake, the teeth will rip your skin off! :eek:

LOL ... a numer of years ago a Ball Python left a nice set of small scars on my
right arm - I had made the wrong decision about reaching into my son's
python cage too soon after it had eaten a rat.

LOTS and LOTS of razor sharp teeth - and he took his own sweet time in turning
me loose!

... I got quite an education that day! Did I mention LOTS of blood, too!?? :eek: :eek: :shock:

I guess they must all have teeth then, and I just never noticed. I feel a little stupid now, since this is something I should have known. :oops: Not only has herpetology been one of my many fascinations since I was a child, but I've even given serious consideration to the idea of starting my own home business breeding exotic reptiles...
*slap on the hand* Now go and buy yourself a book, young man! ;) ;) ;)

I have thought of this too in some respects. I like venomous snakes better though. Wouldn't it be cool to have a large aquarium type structure built into your home to house a Black Mamba or King Cobra...of course one bite from them and its lights out most of the time. I would also hate to come home one night, flip on the lights and discover its not in its cage.
