Video Of Snake Getting Stung By Angry Wasp As It Eats Another Snake Is Peak Florida


A snake has been captured on video getting stung by an insect as it attempts to eat another snake.

In the clip, an insect, thought to be a yellowjacket wasp, is seen landing on a coral snake, which itself appears to be trying to eat a dead rat snake.

It was taken by Evangeline Cummings, a University of Florida employee, in her back yard in Gainesville.

Cummings said on Twitter she was not sure how the rat snake ended up in the rose bush in the first place, but her favorite theory was that it had been dropped by a hawk.

She said of the scene:

“Snakes are common…but I've never seen snake on snake violence let alone the intervening angry wasp!"

While "Florida Man" may be infamous to non-Floridians, the Florida wildlife has proven even more disturbing to people on Twitter.

While this scene may not fit in with a Disney cartoon, there's no denying it's the (bizarre) circle of life.

You've hurt yourself in the kitchen, you've hurt yourself in the garden, you've hurt yourself working around the house. But have you ever hurt yourself while drinking water? Have you ever injured yourself while looking at the microwave?

When we think of teenagers one of the first things that comes to mind is the idea that they have a total know-it-all thing going on. I'll be honest, as a teen I was convinced I had things at least mostly figured out. Oh god, so wrong. So very, very wrong.

So now that I'm an adult, there are tons of things I try to explain to the kids and teens in my life, but I know they just sit and stare at me blankly the way I did to my family members who tried to guide me. It's a cycle, I've just come to accept it.

We can all agree getting older is the worst decision we make as humans, right? Who thought this was the best way to live our lives? Being a kid was the best! Everything seemed to be easier, including playing sports, making friends, somehow learning foreign languages without taking four years of college courses. But then...you grow up, losing all those skills.
