Amazing Snakes Including Snake Swallows Man

Giant Snake Swallows Man In Florida Swamp

Giant Snake Swallows Man In Florida Swamp

On Thursday Florida Wildlife Officiers were called to a remote fishing camp on Lake Okeechobee just off Florida State Highway 78.

When they arrived they found that several men at the fishing camp had captured and tied up a giant snake in the back of a pick up truck. There was something very large in the snake.

The men had tied up the 27 foot anaconda to prevent it escaping into the water. The men had looked for a man missing from their fishing party all morning and they had been on their way back to call him in as a possibly drowned person when they came upon the giant anaconda laying on the bank of a small stream.

It was apparent that the snake had just had a large meal and after the wildlife officiers arrived they cut the head off the snake and removed it to a near by area and cut it open. When they did they found that the missing fisherman was inside the snake. He was deceased.

At this time all names are being with held until the next of kin are notified.

It was only a matter of time until the pythons and anacondas that have made their home in the everglades attacked a human.

There is now a huge established population of pythons and anacondas in the Florida Everglades. In the last year there have been several road killed King Cobras found on roads in south Florida and this has led many people to believe that King Cobras are also now established in south Florida.

Poison Snake Up Date From Florida

A single bite from a Black Mamba may inject enough venom to kill 20-40 grown men, easily killing one unless the appropriate anti-venom is administered in time. When cornered, they will readily attack. When in the striking position, the mamba flattens its neck, hisses very loudly and displays its inky black mouth and deadly fangs.

Here's some scary news. A Green Mamba recently attacked a man in Dade County Florida and escaped. It was filmed on video tape in the back of a strip mall attacking a man who had tried to kill it. In related stories two Green Mamba's and three King Cobras have been killed by automobiles in the same area in the last four years so it would appear that the snakes are living in the wild in south Florida.

The Emerald Tree Boa

The Emerald Tree Boa is one of the most beautiful of all the species of Boa's. The Emerald Tree Boa is native to the rain forests of northern South America. The Emerald Tree Boa is a nocturnal species of snake and it spends most of its time up in the tree branches hanging by its tail and watching downwards for prey. Being nocturnal it sleeps throughout the day and hunts at night. The Emerald Tree Boa has a slow metabolism and doesn't have to eat as often as other snakes.

The Emerald Tree Boa is extremely fast and can grab its prey faster than almost any other snake. While the snake is non venomous it is not a great snake for a pet as it is very aggressive. This is one that is better to look at in the local zoo.

Blind Snakes

Blind Snakes are found burrowing under the soil of every continent on earth except for Antarctica. Blind Snakes are not really completely blind and it makes one wonder how the snake managed to spread out to every continent on earth. The snake is rarely seen and you might have several living outside in your yard and never see one.

The Snake above is the Albino Burmese Python. You can buy this snake in most large pet shops but it grows into a very large dangerous snake. When the snake is grown one person alone should not try to take care of this snake.

Albino Burmese Python

The Albino Burmese Python is one of the most beautiful snakes on earth. This snake is widely available in the U.S.A. in most large pet shops but think before you buy it. This snake will grow into a very large snake that can be dangerous to the person caring for it. One person should not try to provide care for one of these snakes.

It is sad but when these snakes grow up their owners realize they have a dangerous snake they can not care for and they dump them out in the wild. In most areas of the United States this snake can not live through out the winter however pythons including the Albino Burmese Python have become well established in the Florida Everglades and there is now a large breeding population there.

Blue Coral Snake and American Coral Snake

Both of these snakes are venomous and could potentially kill you with a bite. The American Coral Snake native to the Southeastern United States is easily confused with the Scarlett King Snake which is a non poisonous species. Remember if you ever think a snake might be poisonous leave it alone. Only the experts should handle poison venomous snakes.

      Why 'albino' burmese and not just burmese? Its funny how uneducated people are. Although stupid people have released them in the wild before the reason they are in FL is because hurricane andrew wipped out a massive breeding facility years ago! The reptile hobby has came along way and most keepers are responsible and pass that wisdom on when ever possible. I breed burms they are beautiful with great personalitys and never once have I thought about letting one go or felt I was in danger!

      It's such a shame that because of poorly educated people buying and releasing burmese pythons that now it's illegal to transport them over state lines. They're such beautiful snakes! Especially the Granite Albino Burm... Never let a snake free in the wild! There's plenty of snake and reptile rescues everywhere. (I run one as well. ;) ) Beautiful Hub!

      Wow! Voted up + awesome!

      I haven't heard of the elephant trunk snake - what an amazing animal. And the Madagascar pink snake, and red-sided garter snake are superb.Having said that all the snakes you have in the hub are beautiful. As humans we might be good at getting artificial colours but nothing compares to the natural colours that Mother Nature gives to her animals.

      They are beautiful in photos. Though I have a few over 300 alive here in the house and in the barn. The blind snakes really do interest me. I hope to obtain some of them and do an extensive research project on them. Thanks for your comment Mate.

      Awesome!!! I remember a show on the blind snakes that live underground. It was really very eerie--you couldn't see them at all, but if you were very still and listened, you could HEAR them.

      All of these snake photos are very beautiful. I'm slowly changing my mind about snakes, still, I'd much rather appreciate their beauties in photos than in person!
