A young viper was found dead with a centipede’s head protruding out of the snake’s body. As reported by NBC News, Ljiljana Tomovic, a Serbian herpetologist, was tagging snakes in Macedonia when she made the eye-catching discovery.

Towards the bottom of that article is another example of a snake that died trying to digest an alligator.

You don't mess with a centipede, you leave it the heck alone.

That'd be a pretty awful way to go.

I don't have any academic background or qualification or life.
However, I can absorb all substances into the body from my eyes.

That was a pretty ambitious snake. And a very POed centipede.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Got me thinking of this boa and his alligator-lunch. It didn't work out as he planned obviously.

Imagine if we had Titanoboa cerrejonensis still slithering around.
