Lucky Frog Escape The Jaws Of A Snake

January 20, 2015

There might be some foreign language profanities, so please don't watch if you are sensitive or are opposed. 

Not sure where the snake video, (or is it a frog video?) was captured or the language spoken by those who captured the footage, but it is interesting video footage all the same. It shows a snake in the process of eating a frog, but then for some reason, the frog is able to escape the jaws of the snake, which is obviously pretty miffed that it lost its meal.

Water Snake Behavior

The snake is just about finished with the frog, with only the front legs of the amphibian left to be swallowed when the frog somehow crawls out of the snake’s mouth. The frog then hops away and the snake goes after it and misses, then the frog gets away seemingly for good. There is a cut in the video between the snake almost finishing off the frog and the frog crawling out, so the story is not complete.

Did the folks who shot the video interfere and prod the snake to release it? Or perhaps the frog secreted some poison that the snake didn’t take a liking to? What do you think?

John B. Virata keeps a western hognose snake, a ball python, two corn snakes, a king snake, and two leopard geckos. His first snake, a California kingsnake, was purchased at the Pet Place in Westminster, CA for $5. His first pet reptile was a green anole that arrived in a small box via mail order.
