Pet Python Trying To Swallow Its Owner’s Finger

They say don’t bite the hand that feeds you, but obviously this snake didn’t get the memo. A video shows a pet python attempting to eat its owner’s finger. Although the footage may be difficult to watch, according to a snake expert, behavior such as this is rare.

In the video, we hear a woman calling in pain as she asks for help getting a python off her finger. “She’s trying to eat me,’ exclaims the stunned woman. Eventually we see blood trickling down from the woman’s finger as she attempts to remove her finger from the snake’s mouth. After several minutes of struggle, the woman succeeds in getting the finger out, and we see several puncture wounds on it.
