*Now I know you probably don’t like snakes. But you’ve got to admit a snake committing suicide is downright WEIRD. I just had to know more. Here it is.
Matt Hagan of Cairns Snake Catchers went to a house where a woman found the 1.5m Brown Tree snake wriggling on her doorstep.
But Mr. Hagan said by the time he arrived at the woman’s home, the reptile had stopped moving – and its venomous fangs was still sunk into its neck.
‘I could immediately see something wasn’t quite right with the snake. When I picked it up I noticed it was still biting down firmly on its neck,’ Mr Hagan told Daily Mail Australia.
‘I thought what on earth – it looked like it had bitten its own neck and died.’
The veteran snake catcher has found scores of the animals in bizarre places such as photocopiers and vacuum cleaners. But said he had never found one latched onto itself.
Mr. Hagan does say that he doubts a snake would try to take its own life.
‘Apparently when they do have a trauma they do try and bite around the area. I suspect the snake didn’t end its own life on purpose, but was possibly in severe pain and ended up in this unfortunate position,’ he said.
‘It’s just a really odd catch.’
Raise your hand if you thought snakes were immune to their own venom.
