Snake Gets Stuck In A Circle Of Its Shedding Skin

June 24, 2016

This is a video of a Stimson's Python at the Alice Springs Reptile Centre in Australia trying unsuccessfully to slither out of its shedding skin. Somehow the snake managed to form a perfect circle with its old skin and just kept going around and around for three hours before it was finally able to escape. This is pretty much a metaphor for my life. Except there is no escape, three hours was forever ago. Come on -- stay positive, GW, shine that winning smile. "You have something stuck between your teeth." Ugh, of course I do. "Looks like a dick." Oh boy.

Keep going for the video and a shot of the snake finally getting out.

Thanks to Simon A, who's convinced the snake was trying to eat its own tail. Me? I'm convinced that snake is was trying to spell 'O' and did a great job.

    100% fake, sorry. When a snake sheds it's skin, that skin is smaller than the snake after it has shed it.

    There is ZERO chance that the skin, from the same snake, is not only longer, but wider than the snake that just shed it.

    No, someone put a small snake into an already shed snakeskin and close the loop, nothing more......
