Boa Constrictor Learns Painful Lesson Trying To Eat A Porcupine

Boa porcupine

I swear I’ve heard this story before…

Just the lesson about gluttony, not the video.

Boa constrictors are a type of large, non-venomous snake found in Central and South America. They can grow up to 13 feet long and weigh as much as 60 pounds. They are constrictors, meaning they kill their prey by wrapping their powerful bodies around them and squeezing until they suffocate.

Boa constrictors primarily feed on small mammals, birds, and reptiles, although they have been known to attack larger prey as well.

Porcupines are known for their sharp quills, which can be used for defense against predators. Anything that touches them get stabbed with quills that stay stuck into skin of everything.

This python clearly had the wrong idea when it came across a porcupine. The snake is seen with quills sticking out of its body all over… from head to tail.

Clearly, this shows the snake actually attempted to fully wrap itself around the porcupine. The results look awful as it has quills head to tip of tail.

Nature is brutal sometimes… but, all animals have to try and survive somehow.

Snake thought it had an easy meal and now its in a world of hurt.
