Shocked Instagram users posted a barrage of comments on the video. “I really hate snakes,” commented one user. “Oh hell naw…and he pattin it on the back,” said another.
However, some users pointed out that the video has actually been uploaded in reverse. “It’s in reverse, they don’t eat that fast. You see him tapping the snake. That will actually make the snake regurgitate,” one user said while commenting on the video.
The video, uploaded a week ago, has received 27,752 likes and hundreds of thousands of views.
Burmese pythons kill their prey by constriction, coiling their bodies around the animal until it suffocates. These huge snakes also possess stretchy ligaments in their jaws that allow them to swallow their food whole.
According to National Geographic, Burmese pythons are carnivores, eating mostly small mammals and birds. But there are some that have been found hunting larger food items like pigs or goats.
National Geographic further said that have been known to attack and eat alligators.
