“Snakes eat each other all the time,” said Sara Ruane, a snake expert and assistant professor at Rutgers University. To me, it’s crazy how snakes become cannibalistic because you would never regularly see a human eating another human, or a dog eating another dog.

Ruane also said “When snakes are startled by something or something is attacking them, one of their first lines of defense is to throw up whatever is in their stomach.” They throw up their food because they don’t want food weighing them down, and it might scare whatever is attacking them. I know I would definitely run away from someone throwing up on the street.

Check out the video of the snake vomiting another snake:

Ruane identified the larger snake as a coachwhip because of where it was found and its behavior. The coachwhip is a type of snake that eats whatever it can overpower. She also said that the smaller snake was either a coachwhip or a racer. It was harder for Ruane to tell what kind of snake it was since it was behind a bush.

To me, the video is awesome, yet disgusting. It actually turns out that a lot of the time when dead snakes are found, other snakes are found inside. It’s not something out of the ordinary to find one snake inside another’s stomach.
