While most of us would run away upon seeing a snake, no matter how small it might be, two kids in Cambodia have gone viral for catching one with their bare hands, instead!
But these two brave (and a little bit reckless) brothers are not afraid of them!
According to Live Science, there are more than 3,000 species of snakes in the world and there is at least one type of snake on every continent except Antarctica. While the snake has a bad rap as a pest, snakes can often be quite helpful and even a fun pet.
Snakes are carnivores. This means that they only eat meat. Snakes are often seen as pests, but they actually can help keep pests at bay by eating rodents.
Many people think that all snakes kill their prey by biting it and injecting the prey with poison. This isn’t true. Cobras, vipers and other related species are the only snakes that use venom to hunt.
Most snakes simply swallow their prey whole. Large snakes, such as the python, will strangle their prey to death and then swallow it whole. Snakes can eat other animals 75 to 100 percent bigger than their own size. They have been known to eat animals such as crocodiles and cows. To fit the large prey into their mouth, the snake’s jaw will unhinge.
