'Entire rattlesnake' in fossilized human poop

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A 1,500-year-old chunk of fossilized human poop found at a former rock shelter in Texas contains evidence of an ancient hunter-gatherer who consumed an entire rattlesnake—including a fang. Archaeologists have never seen anything quite like it.

Some sort of ceremonial practice was the first thing I thought too. It could of also been some sort of suicide ritual. Many tribes practiced extremely painful ones.

I was thinking it was a double-dog dare. 

"Dude, I'll give you the rest of my berries if you can eat that whole rattlesnake..."

"Pfft! Hold my fermented fruit juice and stand back"

It's when you feel the smell of your own feces you start to wonder who you really are.
