Many people feel extremely shocked at the image of snakes - this "cold-blooded assassin" feeds on his own body.
The body of the creepy crawler, the big "big" mouth, the poisonous venom, whoever comes to visit is dead . - that seems to be the usual description of snakes.
And it is not wrong to say that snake is one of the most dangerous, deadly animals that exists in all terrain and is the most feared "cold-blooded killer" on the planet.
How will you feel when you see this scene?
Yes, you don't look wrong! Even though the venom takes people down in just a few seconds, but does it get "crazy" and bite itself, eat yourself? Are they "suicide"?
From a scientific perspective, snakes have "eaten" themselves. And according to Dr. Ajit Varki of the University of California (USA), snake-eating tail is an act of misunderstanding .
According to Dr., most snakes use their ability to sense body temperature to hunt. However, there are species still wagging their tails quickly to attract prey. Due to limited visibility, they tend to be more reflective.
Waving your tail a lot to "trap bait" , sometimes it mistook your tail as a prey and rushed . to eat.
At this time, the body's venom becomes a weapon that causes them to kill themselves.
Only when they realize what they are eating is not bait, they will release themselves.
Besides, experts also said that snakes eating themselves are also affected by the ability to locate the smell of snakes.
When hunting, the smell of prey unintentionally clings to their tail, so when " snatching" into the tail, they feel like chewing a real prey. Only when they realize what they are eating is not bait, they will release themselves.
Along with the amount of toxins in each snake that individual will die or still survive. Still, this is said to be one of the terrifying behavior of animals - eat yourself .
