D'oh! Video: Snake Eats Girl

Comment: I don’t have the clip but it is online. There is a video clip entitled “Snake Eats Girl” it is very disheartening. Please, tell me this is a hoax. Please investigate and see if some one cut the snake and gets her out. I have exhausted my very limited resources If this is not a hoax how do I report it to the authorities. This then becomes a snuff video. Here is the link; it is on a site called livevideo.com

No, no, no CGI at all.

I sincerely hope the person who sent this in doesn't go to any movies where there is actually well-rendered computer animation and effects- they would be scarred for life!

Really.

Totally real. The snake obviously mistook her for a bunny.

I vote fake. Cottontails like that haven't been available since 1987.

I don't think anything quite like that happens in The Sims. I would guess that the video is from a "vore" fetish website. Having taken an introductory course on computer animation, I have to say it looks pretty good for an amateur work, or at least it is technically way better than what I could do.

Obviosly fake. But since i'm here, i might as well tell you a little something about how the large snakes eat their pray:

The snake in the movie looks like it should be a green anaconda. Anacondas are constrictors. Constrictors kill their pray by curling around it to stop breathing and bloodflow (they don't actually crush their prey).

When the pray is dead the snake will (usually) eat it head first. This help the prey go down easier, since the arms and legs will point in the most streamline direction.

The snake will then slowly devouver the pray by inching it down. To get the pray into the mouth without the aid of arms, the snake is able to unhinge its lower jaw so that the two halfs can move indepentently. This process takes a lot of time. It probably take an anaconda six hours to eat a capybara (a pigsize rodent local to the area where anacondas live).

A large snake like the anaconda is easily able to kill a person, but humans are hard to eat for snakes. The reason? Shoulders. It is hard for the snake to get id's jaws around the shoulders.

Oh, and the last reason i think the video is fake: Anacondas don't have red eyes!

I hope this has helped a little

The Internet is only accessible to a few people, and those who do have access to it rarely check it. That goes double for video-sharing sites. Therefore, you are obviously the first person who has ever viewed that video, so international law requires that it's your responsibility alone to report it to the authorities, and by "authorities" I mean the Global International Police that has the authority to investigate any crime in any country...just go to the G.I.P. office in your town and they will be able to discern what country this happened in and immediately send out local agents to arrest those bad, bad people.

Really...this needs to be reported immediately! A friend of my brother's roommate turned on the TV the other day and a documentary was on that showed surveillance video from an airplane, where someone had released a whole bunch of snakes and an FBI agent who looked like Samuel L. Jackson was trying to stop the snakes. We must not let that happen again!

Pftt! Obviously fake. That rabbit is far too small im comparison to the snake! It seems to really enjoy being eaten alive, though.

Oh, OK. In that case, I apologize to snopes and hope the person who sent him the e-mail was joking.
