Tuesday Video Lunch: Snake Lunch

For this week’s Video Lunch, we’ve chosen a video that might make you lose your regular lunch. (Seriously, if you are easily grossed out by animals eating each other, don’t watch this video.) While mammals such as yourself tend to eat lunch daily, snakes keep far less regular habits. When consuming large meals, snakes can take hours to ingest the food and over a week to digest it. After eating, the snake’s heart and liver grow substantially to support all of the digestive activity. Wait a second, recently fed snakes have drastically enlarged livers? Perhaps we’ve stumbled on a way around the California foie gras ban that we discussed in a recent podcast.
