Snakes can be f*cking frightening. I mean, jump on Wikipedia and read the first line on the page titled ‘Snake’ and it just sounds bloody awful.
Snakes are elongated, legless carnivorous reptiles that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears.
That’s rank. They can swallow prey much bigger than themselves simply because they have ridiculously mobile jaws. Most snakes are venomous and frankly, the idea of coming face to face with a big one scares the living daylights out of me.
So when we stumbled across these pictures of the biggest f*cking f*ck off snake we’ve ever seen, we may have let out a pathetic whimper. I mean, what chance do humans have when nature can cook up something that frightening?
Anyway, the snake was discovered after an Australian sheep farmer was confused about the disappearance of some of his sheep. A few weeks later he put up an electric fence. And then a week later, he found this monster.
If you didn’t read that properly for whatever reason, that is a massive python. They’re properly aggressive and have teeth they use to hold their prey while they wrap around and constrict them.
Oh and if the pictures don’t give you a decent perspective on just how big this snake is, those wires are about 10 inches apart. So that mouth is about two feet wide.
Just think about that for a second. All this has done is add to the impressive list of things which prove that EVERYTHING IN AUSTRALIA WANTS TO KILL YOU!
