You wouldn’t believe how this incredible grandma catches a snake with her bare hands. Take a look at this incredible footage.
There was no uncertainty in Mr. Wright’s mind that the creature he and his father had encountered in their yard was a snake.
It had sauntered across a building, then up the side of a broad BBQ grill on their patio, as Wright had watched. The snake, a python, then slid through a crack in the grill and vanished under the grill’s extra-large black lid.
Morgan, also known as “Granny” or “Ga,” got back to work, with Wright’s father nearby carrying the cover of a plastic container.
Meanwhile, Wright was in possession of the camera.
Morgan, 81, can be seen cautiously observing the snake after raising the lid then leaning in, yanking both sides of the serpent, and tugging it off the grates, according to Wright’s video.
Morgan’s attention then shifts to the grill for a split second, probably after noticing yet another snake on the grill.
“There are two of them!” exclaims a voice. It’s Wright’s dad.
After dropping the first one in the plastic container, Morgan answers, “You’ve got to be kidding me.”
Morgan snatches the second python and tussles it into the large container without delay. After that, the reptiles were moved far from the family’s house.
Morgan assured news outlets, “I’m not afraid, I enjoy it.” “When I relocate them, I say farewell to them and wish them a lovely life,” she continued.
“Oh well, I’m not afraid of them,” the 81-year-old said. “Everyone has to be courageous about it.”
Pythons travel by scooting along in a straight line due to their bulk. According to the San Diego Zoo, this is known as a “rectilinear progression” action. Pythons raise their abdomens to force themselves upward by stiffening their ribs on the ground for protection. It is a sluggish method of travel, and pythons can only run at a pace of one mile per hour.
According to Viernum, certain python species are exceptional swimmers, while some are arboreal. “With their prehensile tails, they dangle from branches.”
Pythons consume a range of foods based on their scale. Rodents, lizards, and small birds are the primary targets of small pythons like the anthill python. Monkeys, wallabies, antelope, and pigs are among the mammals eaten by bigger pythons. A rock python was once discovered with a tiny leopard in its mouth, according to the San Diego Zoo. There have been accounts of the broad reticulated python assaulting people, according to an article reported in the Scientific reports from the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
Viernum described pythons as “nonvenomous ambush predators.” “Some animals can swim and can lie partly underwater in shallow water waiting for prey to enter the water body.”
Arboreal pythons, including the green tree python, do not launch themselves from trees onto prey below, contrary to common opinion. The snake may be severely hurt as a consequence of this. To draw their prey, they lay still on a branch and wiggle their tongues. According to the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, they hit when still in the tree.
Pythons consume their prey by constriction after grabbing it in their long teeth. Constriction, contrary to common opinion, does not indicate crushing. Pythons and other constricting snakes should not crack their prey’s bones with their power. Many scientists assume that pythons strangle their prey by crushing the ribs and stopping it from breathing. In 2015, however, a report showed that the long-held suffocation hypothesis in boa constrictors, the world’s most popular constrictor, was wrong. Squeezing overburdens the blood supply, cutting oxygen supply to the brain and culminating in death, according to the report. Scientists are studying whether other carnivores, such as pythons, use the same strategy.
