Firefighters in Ohio , United States got a strange call from a terrified lady pleading to help her from a boa spiraled around her neck and bitten her nose. The snake was 5 1/2 feet approximately . The 45 years old called 911 at around 2pm local time.
I’ve never heard of this before,” the dispatcher exclaimed. He has to cut the head of the snake with his pocket knife to get if off from the woman.
“It’s biting my nose, there’s blood everywhere,” She explained to the Fire Fighters when they arrived. She also confessed that she rescued two boa constrictors the day before and also she has 11 snakes altogether.
The boa first strikes at the prey, grabbing it with its teeth; it then proceeds to constrict the prey until death before consuming it whole. Unconsciousness and death likely result from shutting off vital blood flow to the heart and brain, rather than suffocation as was previously believed; constriction can interfere with blood flow and overwhelm the prey’s usual blood pressure and circulation. This would lead to unconsciousness and death very quickly.
